If they vote for a union in South Carolina, you farked up about as bad as possible.

/if *anybody* can get a union vote in SC, there's hope for the USA yet
//not that the DNC won't cheer as the GQP outlaws unions in general
///maybe they will decide to be "concerned", but the DNC hasn't done a thing for unions for decades

Have the government seize all starbucks and zero out all stock value. Then make all Starbucks into employee owned shops.  If they fail, they fail.  If the succeed then great also.  Also gitmo the execs if they even object to the forfeiture.  Same with any stock holder.

Problem solved.

Employees: We're forming a union for fair pay and decent working conditions.

We're going to have to annex the rest of Cuba to fulfill your continuing gitmo fantasies.

I can't imagine why the fine, generous people who run this company would be so bad to their employees??

I strongly disagree.  There is an overwhelming amount of public positive sentiment for unions these days in all forms of media.  Younger workers are absolutely having it reinforced that the only way to secure workplace safety is through a union - which is an outright lie.

Salary ignorance, benefit ignorance, and employment law ignorance mixed with a biased fear of Human Resources whose job is partially being an educational resource to employees to address those gaps in knowledge have contributed to the damaging of the work force.

There are a lot of external forces who depend on the demonization of employers, even the good ones, to gain and maintain influence.

Good.

Keep that going long enough and maybe the pendulum will start to swing back on the decades-long fall in union memberships and the support for anti-labor politicians.

There is a certain point when your profits are based on exploiting the labor, that the labor says "F this Shiat" and you no longer have a business

Starbucks is there

Another Starbucks fired a guy a month after he closed the store early. He worked there 13 years and just happened to be involved in the union movement. In solidarity the other people there walked out.
Starbucks should really pay attention to the early days of the labor movement since they seem to make the same mistakes. I suppose next they will hire Pinkerton's to rough up employees.

Human resources works for the employer, not the employee. Frequently, they've deliberately spread this ignorance, on purpose. There needs to be an organization that legitimately spreads this knowledge, because it's important knowledge.

We need someone who can be that "
whose job is partially being an educational resource to employees to address those gaps in knowledge have contributed to the damaging of the work force."

Seriously? this is the sort of tactic they resort to when they don't get there way?   never been in a starbucks and now never will.

Home Depot got wiff of Union talk in one of the Colorado stores then proceeded to fire 95% of the employees there including the store manager,  all but one assistant manager who now works night shift every department manager and the bulk of rank-and-file employees.

Oh and let's not forget that Walmart and they're active discouragement of unions.
