Against all odds, Starbucks workers successfully unionized. Now workers at more than 100 Starbucks stores in 27 states have filed union petitions for elections. In response, Starbucks has launched a relentless anti-union effort. Is this the start of a new golden age of the labor movement and workers' unions? Daisy Pitkin is is an organizer with more than 20 years of experience working with SEIU to help Starbucks workers.
