They were hoping the vote would spark more unionization across the country
A highly anticipated union vote among Amazon warehouse workers in Bessemer, Alabama, appeared to be headed toward defeat for the union, and many liberals on Twitter are very angry about it.
The vote count will resume Friday but with half of the votes counted Thursday, only 463 votes supported unionization, while 1,100 votes opposed unionization, more than a 2 to 1 margin.
A total of 3,215 votes were cast in the vote that is being overseen by the National Labor Relations Board.
The unionization effort needs 1,608 votes to win, a “nearly insurmountable climb” according to NBC News.
Some on the left took to Twitter to express their fury and frustration with the failure to unionize Amazon.
“Not surprised at the disappointing Amazon union vote so far,” said Nathan Robinson, editor of Current Affairs.
