    And, according to the ever reputable CNBC, 550 employees are demanding. That's what? .004%. That should get attention from the nitwits on the left.
    World-wide it is closer to 341,000.

    Inside Amazon, tensions are mounting as employees push management to stop running ads for Amazon products on Breitbart News.

    On March 22, a group of Amazon employees took issue with the company's ads on Breitbart in an email to CEO Jeff Bezos and SVP Jeff Blackburn. Entitled "Amazon Must Stop Advertising on Breitbart News," the email included a petition opposing Amazon's continued advertising on Breitbart, with some 564 signatures.


    There are at least 564 employees at Amazon who care about truth and social justice. Good for them. Not only is Breitbart a fake news site that distorts facts, but is a platform for the racist alt-right.

    Lots of college grad techies are out of work and would love those jobs.

    Won't happen. Instead, Amazon will sever ties with Breitbart. A small victory, but other corporations may follow suit, ending the hate site's main source of revenue.

    Are you suggesting that those 550+ employees are actually trying to bring down Amazon so they will lose their jobs?


    Get real. All they want is for Amazon to sever their ties with an alt-right blog.

    You have spewed more falsehoods and hate right here on this forum than Breitbart ever has.

    Really? Look how many businesses side with the racist Democrats.

    Decedent: "Activists or not, Amazon could suffer if they don't drop Breitbart."

    Yeah, right. But, I guess the rich Democrats can afford to pay more and get less.

    This is how the deceptive press works, amazon has approx 350,000 employees 500 <theysay> are demanding amazon do their bidding. They have a much better chance of bezo firing them before they force him to do a damn thing.

    I don't see the big deal. Amazon wouldn't lose much from dropping Breitbart, and there's nothing wrong with employees making requests of their employers. They are just as invested in the company.
    "A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably with the circumstances of life, knowing that in this world no one is all-knowing and therefore all of us need both love and charity."
    - Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962), American social activist and First Lady of the United States

    Nothing wrong with a company ignoring such a request either.

    Bezos is a tyrant from everything ive read on how amazon employees are treated. Im talking their brick and mortar employees in their warehouses. Amazon could care less what their employees think or want.

    Warehouse workers were complaining about work conditions and being frished before they left the warehouse. Seems there was a long line and those at the end could take 45 mins after their shift to get out the door and they wanted overtime pay for it.

    Bezos offered anyone who didnt like thier work environnment a 1,000 to quit. He said theres a 1,000 waiting to take your place
