Yahoo Finance 08/22/2022

Others disagree. “Starbucks has a problem,” said Rachel Demarest Gold, an employer-side attorney at Abrams Fensterman. “By the time a workforce gets to the point where it’s in an election for union representation, the company already has a problem and probably has had a problem for a long time with its employees because satisfied workers don’t turn to unions.”
