That means Amazon Prime will cost you less than £5 a month, which is pretty stunning value given what is included in the scheme and you'll get access to every deal and discount available on Prime day.

"We provide great employment opportunities with excellent pay - ranging from $16.25-$20.80 an hour, and comprehensive benefits including health care, up to 20 weeks parental leave, paid education, promotional opportunities, and more", spokeswoman Brenda Alfred said in a statement in response to the planned strike. Workers in Spain and Poland will also take action against the company.

The pilots who transport Amazon cargo also weighed in with a digital ad campaign on social medial to call attention to how those in the cockpit are "being overworked, underpaid and disrespected by their carriers".

In the United Kingdom, the labor union GMB - which represents Amazon workers - held protests outside Amazon fulfillment centers. In Minnesota, a majority of Amazon employees are East African, primarily Somali immigrants.

"While Amazon throws huge discounts to its customers on Prime Day, employees lack a living wage", said one German union.

Meanwhile, another group of activists that includes former Amazon workers will deliver petitions to company CEO Jeff Bezos to protest conditions in the company's warehouses and its working relationship with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, according to the Daily Beast.

"I stand in solidarity with the courageous Amazon workers engaging in a work stoppage against unconscionable working conditions in their warehouses", Sanders said in a tweet. The meetings took place previous year, but employees say Amazon didn't sufficiently reduce workloads. They played recordings of children crying at a CBP detention facility and confronted Werner Vogels over Amazon's partnership with ICE, demanding "Cut your ties to ICE, Vogels, cut your ties to ICE".
