Amazon is ending pandemic pay for workers in Canada and people aren't impressed

Amazon will be ending its pay incentives for Canadian workers put in place during the pandemic by the end of the month. 

The incentives, which were originally supposed to stop at the end of April, include $2 extra pay per hour and double overtime.

One of the world's most valuable companies owned by one of the richest men in the world has been under fire during the pandemic for not ensuring workers have been supported and kept safe, and for profiting off their delivery service while small businesses are suffering. 

In early April, the Canadian government made the controversial decision to sign an agreement with Amazon Canada to manage distribution of medical equipment.

The pandemic pay incentives for Amazon workers in Canada will officially end May 30.
