Amazon comes into contact with coronavirus testers when planning a pandemic response

Amazon has held a massive sales event every July for the past few years, but this year, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, it might be postponed. Amazon slashes prices on its most-popular products and devices, while offering "flash sales" throughout the day.

The report says Amazon expects nearly $100 million loss in revenue that could go up to $300 million in the worst-case scenario due to excess unsold devices that might now be sold at discounted rates.

Smalls was the subject of a leaked Amazon memo last week, in which company general counsel David Zapolsky wrote that the assistant manager is "not smart, or articulate, and to the extent the press wants to focus on us versus him, we will be in a much stronger PR position", according to reports. Amazon could lose $100 million "from excess devices it may now have to sell at a discount", Reuters reported. Amazon additionally stated that in 2014's 2 days of Prime Day were the "two biggest days ever for member signups".

Sales from the 2019 Prime Day event held in mid-July were higher than sales during 2018's Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined.

"The protest is the largest action by employees since Amazon began threatening to fire workers for speaking out about Amazon's role in the climate crisis", the AECJ said.

Amazon as well as its employees have actually gone to the cutting edge of providing crucial items to customers throughout the coronavirus episode, a pandemic that has actually contaminated greater than a million individuals worldwide as well as led to greater than 54,000 fatalities. "We should spend the first part of our response strongly laying out the case for why the organizer's conduct was immoral, unacceptable, and arguably illegal, in detail, and only then follow with our usual talking points about worker safety", Zapolsky wrote. The company has ordered millions of face masks for employees and contractors who can not work from home, and has committed to hiring for 100,000 new roles.

At the same time, this also hints that Amazon still has a long way to go before it has a complete defense against COVID-19.
