According tomedia reports, a leaked internal meeting minutes of Amazon show that Amazon is not only preparing to lay off Christian Smalls, who organized the strike, but also wants to “dump” him. Earlier, Christian Smalls, angered by Amazon’s lack of protection against the new crown outbreak, organized a protest by employees.
The reason for the protest was that an employee at the Amazon warehouse had been identified, but the warehouse manager had not told the remaining close contact employees that they had been infected and that no disinfection precautions had been taken.
After the protest, he was fired from Amazon for 14 days of self-isolation after contact with a confirmed colleague.
Smalls says Amazon specifically targeted him because he was outspoken about how the company should respond to the virus pandemic.
According to internal meeting minutes, the sacked Christian Smalls was not smart enough, was not good at words, and used him to attract media attention. The memo also details how Amazon executives are preparing to deal with the negative news related to the cutting of Christian Smalls.
