Amazon's decision to fire warehouse employee Courtney Bowden (Courtney Bowden) violated the law on labor rights and interests, according to last month by the National Husband Relations Commission.Courtney had previously called on Amazon's top management to improve the working conditions of warehouse employees, but he was ruthlessly dismissed, which also caused a great setback to many workers who were forced to work unprotected during the covid-19 pandemic.

Ironically, due to the popularity of covid-19, the revenue and share price of Amazon, an e-commerce giant, have skyrocketed, but they have failed to provide proper protection for warehouse employees.

When it comes to the reasons for his dismissal, Bowden believes that he has been talking with both pay and workplace issues, according to buzzfeed news.

NLRB believed the charges were credible enough and decided to help Mr. Bowden accuse Amazon of long-term interference, restraint and coercion on on employees.

TheVerge reported seven warehouse workers died of COVID-19 infection in May. Earlier, Chris Smoles of Staten Island (Chris Smalls) organized a large strike, which was also prevaricated and dismissed by the company for vague reasons.

As the event continues to ferment, Chris smalls and others have launched a class action lawsuit against Amazon. If Amazon loses the lawsuit, it is obvious that compensation should be given to employees who have been rudely dismissed during this period. But Bowden believes her purpose is more than that.

In an interview with buzzfedd, Bowden said she and her colleagues wanted to improve poor working conditions and related benefits, and not to let people be frightened by words and actions to protect their legitimate rights and interests.
