Amazon: Snowfall Is A Bigger Problem Than Worker Strikes

Hundreds of trade union workers in Amazon's German factories have staged a series of strikes over the last year demanding better wages and working conditions. They're now planning a major strike for the holiday season. However, Amazon executives don't see too much cause for concern. Amazon's head for Germany Ralf Kleber told Reuters that "Snowfall in Germany is the bigger problem in the Christmas business... that is what gives me worry lines," Next to the US, Germany is Amazon's second biggest market. According to Reuters, the company's nine German distribution centers employ 9,000 warehouse staff plus an additional 14,000 seasonal workers.
