Parallax Views w/ J.G. Michael

Amazon Vs. The People in the Age of Pandemic w/ Amazon Whistleblower and Striker Chris Smalls

April 11, 2020

On this very special edition of Parallax Views, former Staten Island Amazon employee Christian Smalls has taken the world by storm after speaking out about conditions at the facility he worked at and organizing fellow employees to strike for better sanitation condition and access to PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) in light of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic. Since then Chris Smalls has had his employment with Amazon terminated and his reputation smeared by the company. A leaked memo has shown top executives at Amazon referring Smalls as "not smart or articulate" and now Senators, including former 2020 Presidential candidate Cory Booker and Sherrod Brown, have comes to Smalls's defense and are demanding answers from Amazon's mega-billionaire head-honcho, Jeff Bezos. This important story is likely not going away soon as Chris prepares to appear on major media outlets in the next week. Luckily for Parallax Views, Chris was gracious enough to stop by our program for a brief but powerful conversation about his story and the fight he's taken up for worker's rights.
