WORKERS from big US businesses are set to stage an unprecedented strike Friday amid the coronavirus crisis, reports say.

Essential staffers at Amazon, Instacart, Whole Foods, Walmart, Target, and FedEx are slated to protest their employers' supposedly profiting at the expense of their health, reports say.

This comes after numerous protests amongst frontline employees over the past month, including Amazon workers near Detroit and McDonald's employees in Los Angeles.

The Intercept reports that employees will leave during their lunch break or call in sick to demonstrate their increasing frustration with the COVID-19 situation.

The protest comes as: 

Union membe Day," said Daniel Steinbrook, a Whole Foods employee strike organizer.

The May 1 demonstration on International Workers Day comes amid claims, from Amazon staffers in particular, that big businesses are not being honest about the COVID infection rates.
