(RepublicanNews.org) – It’s no great secret that there’s no love lost between President Donald Trump and Amazon. The president has been pushing back against the company’s business practices for years. Unsurprisingly, a newly-leaked collection of more than two dozen internal reports from Amazon’s Global Security center contained stunning revelations regarding the internet giant’s invasive personnel practices.
Vice revealed that Amazon used operatives from the infamous Pinkerton detective agency to spy on European workers to monitor labor union activities, social movements, and environmental activism.

According to Vice’s November 23 report, Amazon has been obsessed for years with monitoring workers’ social and political activism, particularly during the holiday season, Amazon’s peak season.
Amazon acknowledged using Pinkerton’s services, claiming it’s part of a company effort to “highlight” potential risks impacting the safety of Amazon workers and operations.
Despite Amazon’s assurances, the allegations raise serious concerns, particularly in light of Pinkerton’s long-standing history of breaking up unions.
