Former Amazon Warehouse Worker and Progressive Activist Jake Burdett

Jake Burdett is a progressive activist and is the former Columbia Democratic Club President in Maryland. He is also a former Amazon warehouse worker.

In this conversation, we discuss:

  • How he made headlines as a student at Salisbury University, when U.S. House of Representative Andy Harris supported jailing Jake for up to 10 years for live-streaming a protest at Harris’ office;

  • His time working in an Amazon warehouse outside Baltimore; and

  • How he became politically active in Maryland politics.
