Markus Hoffman-Achenbach of ver.di, the German United Services Union, stands in front of the Amazon headquarters. Some Amazon employees stood in solidarity for 1,000 German Amazon employees who staged a warning today. Hoffman-Achenbach and others came to Seattle from Germany to bring the issue to Amazons front step. They are striking for better wages and working conditions. Amazon, one of the most prosperous companies in the world and a pioneer in e-commerce, is headquartered in the South Lake Union district in Seattle.

Ray Foresman of Lynnwood, WA, outside of his locker at Fisherman's Terminal in Seattle. Foresman, a commercial fisherman of almost 40 years is the owner of a few vessels, including the Silver Isle. He says that what worries him most is that due to the cost of becoming a commercial fisherman, from licensing to the vessel itself, it is near impossible for people to work their way up from deckhands to owners.
