Another day, another group of uber-woke employees at a work corporation making unreasonable demands because they’re angry at society again.
Amazon staffers of “all genders” are asking for time off to ‘mourn’ over the end of Roe v. Wade following Friday’s majority Supreme Court opinion while also demanding that the e-tail behemoth stop doing business in pro-life states.
The demands come on the heels of an announcement last month that Amazon would cover up to $4,000 in expenses for employees who must travel across state lines in order to get an abortion. Following the Supreme Court’s decision on Friday, several other woke corporations have made similar offers, according to The Daily Wire.
Nevertheless, Libs of TikTok obtained an open letter from hundreds of Amazon employees demanding more action over the loss of their “basic human rights.”

“As part of Amazon’s wide-reaching efforts toward a more inclusive and diverse workforce, we believe that Amazon cannot let this recent decision go unanswered,” the letter notes. “We ask Amazon, the world’s best employer, to actively defend against this assault on our liberty.”
The Daily Wire adds:
Among other actions, the authors are requesting that Amazon “allow employees of all genders the space and time to grieve, express their frustrations, and protest against this assault on our rights.” In addition, they want the company to “donate and match donations to bail funds” to help “women and pregnant people” seeking abortions in states with protections for pre-born babies.
Amazon would not be the first company to pursue such a policy. Clothing maker Patagonia told employees last week that it would pay bail for those who “peacefully protest” in response to the Supreme Court’s decision.
Beyond helping women circumvent their state’s laws, the Amazon employees want the company to “expand remote work options” for those who relocate in response to the decision, “audit and remove product offerings” that “misrepresent” abortion and “encourage hate speech or violence” toward abortion seekers, and stop donating to political groups that oppose abortion.
In addition to Amazon helping their female employees circumvent state laws, the employees also demand that the company “expand remote work options” for workers who want to move out of a pro-life state, “audit and remove product offerings” that “misrepresent” abortion and “encourage hate speech or violence” toward those seeking abortions, and to stop donating to political organizations that are pro-life.
The staffers also wrote in their letter that they want Amazon to “cease operations in states” that have pro-life laws.
While Democrat-run California features more than 170,000 Amazon employees, Republican-run states Texas and Florida have 95,000 and 59,000 Amazon employees, respectively.
The letter’s authors acknowledge that some of their suggestions and demands come with substantial “business risk” but that’s okay because “these are unprecedented times.”
“Given the attacks on our democracy, and the continued deterioration of our rights, we believe the time to act is now,” the employees concluded.
In addition to companies moving to pay for staffers who travel to another state for an abortion, other major retailers have begun rational so-called “Plan B” pills due to an increase in demand. The pills stop the release of an egg from a woman’s ovary while also blocking the joining of sperm and an egg and could also stop fertilized eggs from becoming implanted in the womb, according to the Food and Drug Administration.
The Wall Street Journal reports that Walmart has “some pills available without limits, but only in cases where they wouldn’t ship until next month” and will be limiting sales to “four or six” at a time. CVS is “limiting purchases to three” in an effort to ensure “equitable access.”
