It might not be surprising that Minnesota took the top spot. Workers in the Minneapolis warehouse are planning a six-hour Prime Day strike, with the employees protesting for better working conditions. Washington, home to Amazon’s Seattle headquarters, and New York, home to a nixed second headquarters site, also had a high volume of boycott tweets.
