Gen Z TikTokers are boycotting Amazon
The “People Over Prime Pledge” campaign, led by 70 TikTok creators (with a combined following of more than 51 million), aims to pressure Amazon to meet demands from the Amazon Labor Union, report Taylor Lorenz and Caroline O’Donovan. These include a $30 minimum wage, increased paid vacations and a halt to activities the group considers “union busting”. According to a statement from Gen Z For Change, the advocacy group that coordinated the boycott, “Amazon’s widespread mistreatment of its workers and blatant use of union busting tactics will no longer be tolerated by the TikTok community.” Many of the creators involved in the engagement have had sponsorships with Amazon, but are now turning down future partnerships and closing their storefronts. {The Washington Post}

Gucci could bring its beauty business in-house
Kering is rumored to be exploring options to bring its beauty business in-house, including that of its biggest brand, Gucci. As Rachel Strugatz points out for BoF, brands like Dior and Chanel have owned and operated their thriving beauty divisions for years now. When it comes to fragrances, both companies sell more fragrances than any other brand in the world. Kering, in an attempt to compete with these two, wants to make Gucci a 15 billion euro brand. Current Gucci Beauty maker Coty would suffer a significant loss as a result of the move. Coty named Gucci’s Flora Gorgeous Gardenia Eau de Parfum one of the company’s top three fragrances. With no separation plans in place, there is still time for a new deal, but also for Kering to build its own beauty division. {fashion company}
