Amazon faces its first unionization vote in the country in seven years next week in Bessemer, Alabama, and if the workers decide to unionize, it could spark waves of action across the country.We interviewed Christian Smalls, a former Amazon employee, who led a walkout last March at a warehouse in Staten Island and was subsequently fired. He told us about his experience, his thoughts on the union push in Alabama, and what's next for essential workers.And in headlines: Andrew Cuomo signs a bill to repeal the “walking while trans” ban in New York, Canada designates the Proud Boys as a terrorist organization, and country music’s Morgan Wallen gets dropped after using the n-word.Show Links:"Amazon to face first U.S. unionization vote in seven years next month"https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2021/01/15/amazon-union-alabama-vote/The Congress Of Essential Workershttps://tcoew.org/Follow Christian Smalls on Twitterhttps://twitter.com/Shut_downAmazon
