What does it take these days to qualify as a national news story? Well, apparently not much:
At least two Amazon employees have resigned in recent weeks to protest the company’s decision to continue to sell a book they say frames young people who identify as transgender as mentally ill. https://t.co/JZw6MNKzkc

Clearly NBC News is trying to get another narrative to grow from their tiny seed.
2 employees? And that’s newsworthy?

Two people out of over a million employees. This is not news.

0.0000015% of Amazon's workforce resigned and NBC wants us to think that's newsworthy.
BTW, an average of 2,000 Amazon employees quit their job daily.

I’m sure Amazon really cares that two woke employees quit. https://t.co/lMz8UBwxJ2

NBC thinks two employees quitting is worthy of an article. https://t.co/CMuvYbPdOt

For context: Amazon has almost 800K employees https://t.co/WJv5OlS4bl

It’s called the free market. And they’re free to find other employment.

They didn’t quit
They transitioned to unemployment

NBC News is really trying to build a controversy from the ground up with that one.
