Amazon Watch!!!!!! More than 100 workers in the U.S. in Minnesota, and thousands of workers in Germany, organized by the labor union Verdi, and across Europe in Spain and Poland are striking on Prime Day, Amazons annual sale, with the slogan No more discount on our incomes. The strike comes as Amazon, which employees more than 600,000 people globally, extended the Prime Day sale for the first time ever to two days from July 15 to July 16 and promised one-day delivery on many items. Employee advocates say that will put more physical pressure on workers to keep up with demand. The strikes began Sunday night at Amazon facilities in Europe and at a warehouse ' or fulfillment center in Amazons corporate parlance ' outside of Minneapolis and are expected to continue all day Monday. One U.S. Amazon warehouse employee in Minnesota said shes expected to physically handle and drop off 600 items per hour while staying on her feet continuously, the Washington Post reported. Employee advocates slammed Amazons history of allegedly mistreating its workers in the U.S. and around the globe, and urge the need for more humane working conditions.

This is the first part of a two part interview with Stephen Jenkinson. Stephen Jenkinson is a teacher, author, storyteller, spiritual activist, farmer and founder of the Orphan Wisdom School, a teaching and learning house for deep living and making human culture, rooted in knowing history, being claimed by ancestry and working for a time yet to come. Stephen is the subject of the National Film Board of Canada's documentary film Griefwalker, about his experience working with the dying. His books include Money and the Soul's Desire, Die Wise: A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul, and most recently Come of Age: The Case for Elderhood in a Time of Trouble. There are more old people than ever before, and people are living longer than ever. But, there are virtually no elders in our society. No elder wisdom to pass down. And we see the effect of that in our world. Now more than ever we need to call forth elderhood in each other and ourselves, otherwise the world will devolve into self delusion and destruction. And we are well on the way there already. This is a powerful interview with a deeply insightful man.
