We can't overcome (sob)

Delaware's Amazon workers are in solidarity with...Deutschland, where they make YouTube videos telling everyone how much they like their jobs;
A small group of equipment maintenance and repair technicians at Amazon’s Middletown, Del., warehouse rejected union representation Wednesday night by a wide margin.
If it had been approved, it would have been the first bargaining unit for Amazon in the U.S.
The workers voted 21-to-6 against having the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers represent them and seek a contract with the online retail giant.
Forgive them, for they knew not what they did to themselves;
Machinists spokesman John Carr said Amazon’s campaign to discourage unionization with meetings at the warehouse worked. “The pressure that these workers faced was intense and was more than they could overcome,” Carr said. 
That, or they're just not that into you, guy.
