Amazon workers planning Prime Day strike


(CNN) — Amazon workers are planning a labor strike on Prime Day.

According to Bloomberg, the six-hour work stoppage will happen on July 15 at Shakopee, Minn.

The workers want better pay and working conditions.

But Amazon says it already offers “competitive hourly rates ranging from $16.25 to $20.80, with benefits.”

The Shakopee Warehouse has about 1,500 full-time employees.

Amazon Prime Day is the annual shopping event exclusive to Amazon Prime members.

This year, Prime Day will last for two full days, July 15 and 16.

The company does not expect any disruptions in shipments to customers during the strike and rally.
