On this special episode of the It's Going Down podcast, we host a round table of essential workers who are planning May Day strike actions this Friday. This includes workers from Amazon, Whole Foods, Instacart, and Shipt. We discuss how the coronavirus crisis has played out in each workplace and how corporations have pushed workers head first into danger while they have watched their profits soar.
During our discussion, we touch on how each corporation has failed to protect workers from potentially contracting the virus, the recent wave of strike action, and how corporations have responded by firing organizers, media spin, and outright repression. Finally we talk about the strike being planned on May 1st and how the public can stand in solidarity.
