Amazon employees on Staten Island successfully spearheaded the first-ever unionisation effort at the e-commerce juggernaut, according to Tucker Carlson.
This came up during an interview with Christian Smalls, a warehouse worker credited for organising the labour movement.
Carlson has slammed Amazon and another tech behemoth His programme has questioned Silicon Valley’s influence.
On Thursday, Carlson told Smalls, “I’ve never been pro-union, but Amazon seems to require some balance.”
“The employees have no control in this vast corporation, and maybe we might share a little power with them.” But that’s my opinion.”
US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was criticised for failing to join the workers’ march.
On Staten Island, last summer, the socialist legislator assured organisers she would attend the demonstration outside the JFK8 Amazon fulfilment site, but she backed out.
By not attending an August demonstration in favour of the employees, Ocasio-Cortez was accused of “leaving them high and dry.”
Last weekend, Smalls was asked whether he had any words of advice for Ocasio-Cortez.
Hell no! “She didn’t earn this.”
Mr Smalls claimed Ocasio-Cortez wasn’t the only legislator who had failed to advocate for workers during his Thursday appearance with Carlson.
Smalls: “We know they didn’t make or break our election whether they turned there or not.”
Worker unionisation at Amazon’s Staten Island facility passed this month.
According to the National Labor Relations Board, 2,654 people voted in favour of unionisation and 2,131 against it.
After all, the firm has tried to project a progressive image, so why is Amazon contesting the unionisation vote?
Then Carlson informed Smalls, “I am pulling for you.”
Then you’ll forget you can’t feed your family if they keep throwing woke mantras at you.
