Amazon warehouse workers served their bosses with a mock anti-social behaviour order today for paying staff barely the minimum wage and dodging corporation tax.
Staff with the GMB union rallied outside Amazon's depots across the country telling the firm to pay up.
Despite sales of more than £7.3 billion since the financial crisis began in 2008, it has paid no corporation tax in Britain. All payments are funnelled through accounts in tax haven Luxembourg.
GMB officials said its members at Amazon were receiving just £6.20 an hour - a single penny above the national minimum wage.
National organiser Paul Clarke said Amazon had become "a dirty word."
"While everyone wants goods as cheap as possible, it's now beginning to dawn on people the consequences of buying from tax-dodging companies who treat their staff so badly."
