More than 400 lawmakers from 34 countries back ‘Make Amazon Pay’ campaign

LONDON (Reuters) — More than 400 law­mak­ers from 34 coun­tries have signed a let­ter to Amazon.com Inc boss Jeff Bezos back­ing a cam­paign that claims the tech giant has “dodged and dis­missed … debts to work­ers, soci­eties, and the plan­et,” organ­is­ers said.

The “Make Ama­zon Pay” cam­paign was launched on Nov. 27 — the annu­al Black Fri­day shop­ping bonan­za — by a coali­tion of over 50 organ­i­sa­tions, with demands includ­ing improve­ments to work­ing con­di­tions and full tax transparency.

The letter’s sig­na­to­ries include U.S. Con­gress­women Ilhan Omar and Rashi­da Tlaib, for­mer UK Labour Par­ty leader Jere­my Cor­byn and Vice Pres­i­dent of the Euro­pean Par­lia­ment Hei­di Hau­ta­la, co-con­venors Pro­gres­sive Inter­na­tion­al and UNI Glob­al Union said.
