Amazon has been targeting union supporters and workers with disabilities and illnesses, firing both groups en masse. The company just fired Amazon Labor Union co-founder Jordan Flowers, who needs dialysis and will require a kidney transplant. Now, he faces pricey medical bills with no health insurance.

Amazon has fired a number of workers facing serious illnesses, injuries, or disabilities under suspicious circumstances. Watch our video coverage of the circumstances surrounding Flowers’ firing.
