Summary (IA Generated)

Amazon is facing government investigations and activist protests across the globe, from the US to Europe to India. CEO Jeff Bezos announced on Thursday that the company’s Amazon Prime membership program now boasts more than 150 million paying customers across the globe. Amazon’s stock price jumped more than 10 percent on the Prime news and the company’s broader earnings report for the holiday season. For Bezos personally, that jump amounted to a reported $13.2 billion. […] Several recent investigations by media outlets allege that this demand has led to above-normal injury rates for Amazon warehouse workers, and sacrificing driving safety in the name of speedy delivery. […] Earlier this week, the Amazon Employees for Climate Justice group persuaded more than 350 employees to simultaneously violate Amazon’s communications policy.
