Amazon Vice President Resigns After Company Fired Whistleblowers

Tim Bray, senior engineer at Amazon Web Services, and the vice president just quit their job because whistleblowers were fired for trying to improve the below-average work environment of Amazon warehouse workers.

Bray wrote:

Remaining an Amazon VP would have meant, in effect, signing off on actions I despised. So, I resigned. The victims weren’t abstract entities but real people; here are some of their names: Courtney Bowden, Gerald Bryson, Maren Costa, Emily Cunningham, Bashir Mohammed, and Chris Smalls. I’m sure it’s a coincidence that every one of them is a person of color, a woman, or both, right?

Amazon has been criticized for how it treats its warehouse workers for some time, and the only way the company is dealing with the situation is to fire employees who speak out. Last month, conglomerate Maren Costa and Emily Cunningham fired for their Seattle warehouse for criticizing the company on Twitter.

The women criticized Amazon’s climate position. In addition, Amazon’s six technicians took a sick day in April and protested the company’s treatment of workers. Another worker. Chris Smalls from the New York camp was released for “violating social distance policies and endangering the safety of others.

At the end of the day, it’s all about power balances. The warehouse workers are weak and getting weaker, with mass unemployment and (in the US) job-linked health insurance. So, they’re gonna get treated like crap, because capitalism. Any plausible solution has to start with increasing their collective strength. The big problem isn’t the specifics of Covid-19 response. It’s that Amazon treats the humans in the warehouses as fungible units of pick-and-pack potential.

Bray is not at all happy about leaving the company. He said:

This will probably cost me over a million (pre-tax) dollars, not to mention the best job I’ve ever had, working with awfully good people. So, I’m pretty blue.
