Handful of Amazon workers whine, at least two rage quit, because company sells books they don’t like

Source: Yahoo! News

“At least two Amazon employees have resigned in recent weeks to protest the company’s decision to continue to sell a book they say frames young people who identify as transgender as mentally ill. The resignations come after a complaint posted to the company’s internal message board in April drew the support of over 467 Amazon corporate employees, according to a copy obtained by NBC News. As of last year, the company employed over 1.3 million people worldwide and is the second-largest employer in the U.S. … The employee-led petition calls for the removal of the book ‘Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters,’ by Abigail Shrier. In it, Shrier explores what she calls a ‘trans epidemic’ of young girls identifying as transgender. … Shrier wrote on Twitter that ‘anyone who thinks my book ‘advances a narrative of transgender identity as a disease’ hasn’t read it, or is a bona fide idiot.'” (07/14/21)
