Ross Reynolds visited some of the workers who have participated in the strikes at Amazon fulfillment centers in Germany. The country is the second biggest market for the Seattle-based online retailer. While selling in Germany may be straightforward for Amazon, labor relations are not.
Since May last year, union employees at Amazon fulfillment centers in Germany have been gone on strike seven times for one to three days at a time.
Ross Reynolds speaks with Seattle area novelists Maria Semple ("Where'd You Go Bernadette") and Robert Dugoni ("The Jury Master"), who are on either side of a literary feud between Amazon and Hachette, a major publishing house.
Hachette authors say Amazon is retaliating by making it harder for people to buy their books. Amazon supporters say they want to keep prices low for consumers.
