      Workers at one of the nation’s most union-averse companies in one of the most hostile states toward organized labor got a welcome boost this week from Sen. Bernie Sanders, who tweeted his full-throated support for what he said could be a “shot heard around the world.”

      In a significant first step, workers at the Amazon Fulfillment Center in Bessemer, Alabama, outside of Birmingham, filed notice with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the Washington Post—which is owned by Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos—reports.

      The notice states that the warehouse workers intend to hold an election to establish a collective bargaining unit to represent some 1,500 full- and part-time employees at the facility under the auspices of the Mid-South Council of the Retail, Wholesale, and Department Store Union (RWDSU).

      Sanders (I-Vt.) first weighed in on the issue with a Monday tweet asserting that “all workers are entitled to decent wages and working conditions, which is why I stand with the Amazon warehouse workers in Alabama exercising their constitutional right to form a union.”

        Had he run as an independent, that would be a guaranteed win for Trump.

          @eridani  Biden is worse on almost all policy issues such as war, trade, immigration, etc.  He was supported by all the wrong people, IC, MIC, warmongers, neocons, MSM, Big Tech, most billionaires, etc.

            Totally incompetent churn based only on loyalty to him personally has been a disateer.
