In Grand Rapids the National Labor Relations Board continues to investigate Starbucks for Unfair Labor Practices.
The two groups are calling on all social organizations, unions, and invdividuals to organize and participate in this Day of Action.

I usually go to a Starbf*cks to study. There is a quiet corner in one and at works for me. Not there today, of course! I tip well. There seems to be a constant turnover there. The workers never stop moving. It must be very exhausting and I feel not real satisfying to be an expert at making a moka frappy skim tall lah-tay with a shot for all of us drones.
We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
