Amazon VP quits protesting against employee firings
New Delhi : Amazon Vice President has called it quits in protest against the company's actions to fire the worker who spoke up concerning the circumstances inside the corporate’s warehouses and its report on local weather change.
Tim Bray, a VP on the firm, wrote in a weblog put up that he left his job final week “in dismay” after Amazon fired a number of employees who publicly criticized the corporate.
He mentioned the firings have been “evidence of a vein of toxicity running through the company culture.”
While detailing the case, Bray even named the victims of Amazon's crackdown, saying that some of them were "Courtney Bowden, Gerald Bryson, Maren Costa, Emily Cunningham, Bashir Mohammed, and Chris Smalls."
"The victims weren't abstract entities but real people," he said, adding that "I'm sure it's a coincidence that every one of them is a person of color, a woman, or both."
As The Verge reports, Cunningham and Costa were fired earlier this month after they criticized warehouse conditions during the COVID-19 pandemic on Twitter. They had also previously criticized Amazon's climate policies.
