“The working conditions in this highly profitable company has been described as ‘unsafe,’ ‘to bruise,’ ‘exhausting,’ ‘is a recipe for disaster,’ set ‘, workers and communities at risk’, and ‘poignant’,” the lawmakers ‘ letter, to quote from the recent strike organized by the Amazon warehouse workers at a facility in Minneapolis, Minn., referred to in order to protest against the unfair, unsafe practices.

“As A Rep. Omar and the S that He is really trying to help the American worker, they need to focus on the passage of legislation that raises the federal minimum wage —$7.25 is too low,” the spokesperson added. “As for the letter, we are delighted to have OSHA visit and use our facilities as we offer guided tours to the public in any member of the public.

The European Union announced on Wednesday that it is launching an anti-trust investigation into whether the tech giant is abusing its role as an independent marketplace for sellers and a provider of its own retail products on the market.
“European consumers are increasingly shopping online. E-commerce has increased retail competition and brought more choice and lower prices,” said Margrethe Vestager, the EU commissioner in charge of competition policy, in a statement. “We have to make sure that the online platforms you do not have to eliminate any of these benefits through an anti-competitive practice.”
