Gen-Z TikTokers are boycotting Amazon 
The "People Over Prime Pledge" campaign led by 70 TikTok creators (with a combined following of over 51 million), is aiming to pressure Amazon to meet the requests of the Amazon Labor Union, report Taylor Lorenz and Caroline O'Donovan. These include a $30 minimum wage, increased paid time off and halting activities the group considers "union-busting." Per a statement from Gen Z For Change, the advocacy group that coordinated the boycott, "Amazon's widespread mistreatment of their workers and blatant use of union-busting tactics will no longer be tolerated by the TikTok Community." Many of the creators involved in the pledge have had sponsorships with Amazon, but are now refusing future partnerships and shutting down their storefronts. {The Washington Post}

Gucci may bring its beauty business in house
Kering is rumored to be exploring options to bring its beauty businesses in-house, including that of its largest 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. As far as fragrance goes, the two companies sell more perfume than any other brand in the world. Kering, in order to attempt to compete with those two, wants to build Gucci into a €15 billion brand. The current manufacturer of Gucci Beauty, Coty, would suffer a major loss as a result of this move. Coty has listed Gucci's Flora Gorgeous Gardenia eau de parfum as one of the top three leading fragrances within the company. With no plans to separate in place, there is still time for a new agreement to be made, but also time for Kering to build its own beauty division. {Business of Fashion}
