On November 25th, Montgomery County Executive and DSA member Marc Elrich addressed one of the many Black Friday “Make Amazon Pay” rallies and strikes happening around the country and world.
The rally took place at the Amazon Fresh store on 14thStreet in the District and was organized by Our Revolution. The rally focused attention on Amazon’s union-busting tactics, squeezes on worker salaries, avoidance of local taxes and excessive carbon emissions. Meanwhile, across the United States and the world, similar demonstrations — as well as labor strikes — took place in opposition to Amazon's corporate greed.
