Warehouse workers for Amazon are threatening to walk off the job later this week unless the company gives all its employees paid time off to vote. There is no federal requirement for companies to provide time off for voting, but the Amazon workers are part of a broader push this year for employers to make it easier for Americans to cast their ballots.

Here & Now's Tonya Mosley speaks with Victoria Shineman, assistant professor of political science at the University of Pittsburgh.

This segment aired on October 26, 2020.
