Author tricks Amazon into distributing union materials to its own employees via book cover
See the original posting on The Verge
I havent read Mike Monteiros new book Ruined by Design, so I cant say whether its any good. But I wouldnt be surprised if it isnt available at Amazon for all that much longer, now that its cover encourages Amazon workers to form a labor union.
This past Thursday, Monteiro tells The Verge, he realized he could change his self-published books cover as easily as uploading a new PDF and used it to add a new message to Amazon workers theyll presumably see as they print and package it for delivery.
Every time you buy my book from Amazon, a warehouse worker has to pull it off the shelf. From now on, this is what that worker will see. At least until Amazon shitcans the whole thing. Hurry up. https://t.co/l5jxdz1azW p…
