Protest at Whole Foods

On November 23 in Hadley, Massachusetts there was a protest rally outside Whole Foods. Hadley borders Northampton and Amherst. Whole Foods is owned by Amazon. About 10 people were at the rally, organizer Jackie Velez told the Valley Post. They handed out fliers to customers. Velez works for Massachusetts Jobs With Justice.

According to a press release from the group, Amazon's “demands are so high that people working at Amazon warehouses collapse from exhaustion and some have died on the job. All the while, Amazon shareholders and executives rake in outrageous profits.”
