Amazon threatens to fire workers who criticized company’s climate policy

Amazon workers who questioned the company’s plans to reduce carbon emissions as inadequate have been told they could be fired if they continue to speak to the press. The group Amazon Employees for Climate Justice said four of its members received emails from Amazon reminding them of company policies that could result in termination if they continue to publicly criticize the company. .

What? To speak the truth that what the media says about climate change is nonsense? That man made climate change doesn't have any scientific backing? That it's just a way to tax people more?

I'm sure the left would point out that Amazon is a private company and so it can do whatever it wants with regards to hiring and firing workers.

So two climate catastrophists have been sacked because they published material based on misinformation blaming their employer for causing damage to the climate. Sounds fair enough to me.

Of course they threatened to fire them. Anything that threatens the corporate agenda is a fireable offense in their eyes. Unionize them and they will have some basic rights which they can use to to defend against this type of abuse. And these greedy pigs can afford it. They pay no corporate taxes whatsoever.
