The post, which uses hard facts to make the case for supporting Amazon unionization, has been “bombarded” with copy/paste comments that look suspiciously similar and parrot language used by union-busting consultants.

UPDATE (rest of story continues below): post author horse7334 has been updating their original post with other examples:
The good news is that actual workers are calling the union-busters out for their astroturf tactics.
