In the last few weeks, I’ve seen more and more articles about the condition Amazon’s workers have to contend with while filling orders—alongside articles about Jeff Bezos’ astronomical wealth. Because I don’t think anyone should be that rich at the expense of their worker’s health and safety, I have decided that I will boycott Amazon from here on out.
I plan to buy my books from Powell’s, Barnes & Noble, Half Price Books, or independent booksellers until Bezos changes his business’s practices. Anything else I might have purchased from them I will source from somewhere else.
It might not do much, but I hope that other readers will see this post and think about boycotting Amazon, too.
