SHAKOPEE, M.N. (KELO) — If you track your Amazon packages to Sioux Falls, many come from Shakopee, MN. That’s where one of the retail giant’s fulfillment centers are. On Monday afternoon, to coincide with Prime Day, an estimated 100 Amazon workers plan to walk out of a warehouse facility in Shakopee for six hours, according to WCCO-TV.

Andy Elwood: when the average wage is at $12-20 per hour plus benefits and employees are still complaining about working to hard then they should try getting a job in the construction field working outside in 90 degree weather or-30 below for the same money and then ask for their jobs back at Amazon.

Amazon shouldn't have to wait on government to set a pay scale. Amazon needs to be ahead of its core value of workers. Put your CEO on line in one of your facilities and let them work for a month, could change how Amazon thinks.
