The Bessemer Debacle: Why Did Amazon Workers Vote Against Unionization?

Over the course of fifty days, Amazon mobilized dozens of consultants and influencers, created websites, sent dozens of anti-union messages to every employee on Twitter and WhatsApp, and called a hundred meetings with mandatory participation during working hours.
