"The fact is Amazon offers already what this outside organization is asking for," an Amazon spokesperson told Retail Dive in an emailed statement, citing wages of $16.25 to $20.80 an hour in addition to healthcare and other benefits. "We encourage anyone to compare our pay, benefits, and workplace to other retailers and major employers in the Shakopee community and across the country and we invite anyone to see for themselves by taking a tour of the facility." Amazon workers plan to strike at a fulfillment center in Minnesota during the company's Prime Day sales event, according to a Bloomberg report. Amazon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
