Warehouse workers stage vigil at Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ $165 million Beverly Hills home on Prime Day, to demand better safety measures, higher pay.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — "Jeff Bezos is the real virus,” yells Enrico Maniago. 

The warehouse worker organizer decried the world’s richest man for profiting off laborers and contributing to income inequality as a small crowd lined up along Angelo Drive in Beverly Hills. Behind him, the green expanse of a massive hedge and a pitch-black steel gate towered over, hiding Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ $165 million mansion from sight. 

At a mock vigil Tuesday night, protesters brought plastic candles, which provided soft lighting on an otherwise dark street, to highlight the plight of Amazon’s frontline workers on Prime Day, the e-commerce giant’s annual flagship sales event. At one point, the crowd broke out in chant: “Hey Jeff Bezos, you can’t hide. We can see your greedy side.”
