Come On Jeff . . . Deliver The Living Wage In 2014

Posted at 12:56PM Wednesday 15 Jan 2014

Despite billions in sales and a commitment to be "Earth's most customer-centric company", Amazon has yet to respond to tens of thousands of customers calling on them to do the right thing: pay their workers a fair wage they can live on.

Over 50,000 of us who have signed and shared this petition - that's enough to fill more than half of Wembley! So together we can keep the pressure on by getting thousands more on board, and demanding that Amazon's boss meets us face to face. We're taking this petition to Amazon's London offices on 28th February at 1pm. Please join us to make our voices heard!
