  • Classify Samsung US Sales Experts As Employees
    This is a human rights issue. There are LGBTQ+ individuals who rely on Samsung US and iAdvize as the only place who will accept them. These people need to be protected. There are single parents who rely on Samsung US and iAdvize as their sole source of income. These people need to be protected. There are disabled individuals who rely on Samsung US and iAdvize as the only job that will allow them the flexibility they need. These people need to be protected. There are college students and dropouts who rely on Samsung US and iAdvize as the only job that will allow them to work from home or their dorm. These people need to be protected. We are human beings who just want to help customers pick out a new phone, television, refrigerator, or laptop. But we'd also like to be treated with respect and be paid a living wage while doing it. We don't want something radical, we want something equitable.

  • Stop Discrimination At Sam's Club/Walmart
    Sam's Club and Walmart must stop all of the discrimination against employees with disabilities and elderly employees. We desperately need workers rights. Many Associates are afraid to speak up against Walmart and Sam club's harassments towards them, especially seniors. Stop Walmart from pitting associates against each other. I would like Sam's Club/Walmart to change for the better. I also would like union representation if associates chose to.

  • Disability Care Workers Demand Oversight Agency Enforce Dignified Work Standards!
    We are workers in disability services writing to address issues that impact us and the people we provide services to—people with developmental and intellectual disabilities in the greater Philadelphia region. As direct care workers, employment support professionals, personal care attendants, and other essential workers, we make it possible for many people to live and work in their communities, and without the revenue we bring in, the provider agencies we work for could not exist. However, despite our critical responsibilities, the work is not taken seriously, and consequently the well-being of disabled people is disregarded. ODP and provider agencies do not meet the needs of the people they allegedly serve because they do not invest in their workforce. Provider agencies do not pay most disability service workers a living wage, and they provide cursory, poor-quality training. Low wages and inadequate training lead to high turnover, chaotic workplace environments, and a workforce who is unprepared to meet the needs and desires of the people we serve. The high turnover rate combined with the lack of training disrupt peoples’ lives and increase the risk of preventable incidents, which often cause incredible trauma. ODP and provider agencies’ failure to invest in us as workers directly harms people with disabilities. We, as disability service workers, must be paid at least $15 an hour and be trained commensurate with the importance of our role in the lives of other human beings. ODP and provider agencies exclude disability service workers from the conversation about how to improve our field, and we demand to be recognized for our essential input. In addition, disabled people must be included in the conversation to center their needs, insight, and experience. Disabled people frequently do not have a choice about who is part of their lives or system of care and are more likely to experience abuse because they may depend on others to assist them. Those with direct experience of receiving services must be the primary authority on the value of the services they receive and the broader conversations around our field. We demand a comprehensive training system that prepares workers for their jobs that is developed and led by people with disabilities. It is not fair to the workers or to disabled people to be treated with such disregard. Workers need to be prepared for our jobs, and we deserve opportunities to grow and develop as professionals. Disabled people deserve well-trained workers who provide safe and steady support. They should not be placed in abusive or stressful situations or be forced to ask a stranger, friend, or relative to help them because they can’t trust their workers or the provider system to prioritize their well-being. The lack of recognition given to the importance of direct care work misses opportunities to create commitment in the job and enduring positive relationships with the community it intends to serve. We demand that the Pennsylvania Office of Developmental Programs and provider agencies of the Philadelphia area pay a wage of dignity and provide training commensurate with the great responsibility we have in supporting and caring for our fellow human beings. Once a critical mass of disability care workers sign onto the petition, we will deliver this petition and escalate to ensure ODP meets our demands.

  • Relaunch Starbucks Coffee Master
    The current coffee academy is not working. Partners can no longer get the title or the apron for being a coffee master. Instead baristas can spend hours completing a free online course on coffee. The program is unpaid and there is no incentive to complete the program. Coffee master used to be one of the coolest parts of working at Starbucks. Partners and customers would look up to coffee masters if they had questions or wanted to learn more about coffee. Coffee masters were there to support and help partners learn more about coffee. Currently, customers are no longer getting their questions answered about how to brew coffee. They can no longer get a roast recommendation based off of their personal preferences. Many partners haven't even tried a majority of Starbucks roasts. Something needs to change.

  • Associate Rights on the job.
    It’s important to have the same standard for everyone that has been there and is coming to join. Manager should be held respectful and reasonable when it come to learn new thing and coming in as a new manager. And if we the people can’t voice our opinions where is our rights. How can you be a good leader with out being a good follower. We work harder than most don’t get nothing but a 35 min break one 20 min and one 15 min it’s not fair that jobs doing way less hour Nd less work get more hour to eat than we do. We sign up for day shift ,night shift ,or weekend day or night but we have to come in every weekend and we don’t get time an a half, holiday pay ,weekend ,or night shift pay. We feel our jobs is being threatened Because if we don’t come in on our day off that’s 2 points or more. We done went through every step we needed to help with the concerns we the associate have.

  • Fool-proof Recycling for Starbucks
    It is important because committing to sustainability is an important movement that Starbucks claims to be apart of and something they claim to do, when we don't even have recycling bins at the very least. We, as partners, create an absolute ridiculous amount of waste and even half effort could save so much waste from making it to the landfills.

  • Stand with SECSE!
    When we completed our employee training, we were each deemed "certified sex nerds" but you might know us better as SESAs. The sex educator/sales associates of Good Vibrations Brookline and Cambridge have been proudly providing non-judgmental sex education to their communities for years. We have striven to create sex positive spaces which battle shame with empowerment and now we need your help to create a workplace that feels safe and empowering for us. The collective employees of these two Good Vibes locations known as Solidarity with East Coast Sex Educators or SECSE (yes, it IS pronounced 'sexy') have come together to demand consent and communication in how the company is run amidst this pandemic and beyond it. We want to amplify our voices on the ground and demand that our needs be addressed directly in the decision-making processes of this company. We love our jobs and many of us have proudly served our communities for 3+ years, learning as we teach others and working to continuously reassess accessibility and representation within our spaces. When we put our company name behind supporting LGBTQIA+, black, brown, disabled, sex worker, and otherwise marginalized voices, we at SECSE believe that the company should extend this support to their employees just as much as we provide it to our communities. Our west coast corporate office doesn't agree that our demands address problems which require immediate action. Good Vibrations cannot claim to serve these communities until they support EVERYONE in these communities including the very people who champion their cause during dangerous times. Stand up for quality sex education, stand up for LGBTQIA+ workers, stand up for consent and communication not just in our personal lives but our professional lives as well. Stand with SECSE!

  • Increase Hourly Wage for Tatte Employees
    Tatte FOH employees do more than just take orders and food run. They are heavily trained upon being hired, so that no pastry, dessert, or retail items are out of place. While this makes for great service and knowledgeable staff, this also means that they are expected to perform more duties than the average server, yet make less than one. These high standards must be reflected in the pay that FOH receives. $10/hour is simply not a living wage, and this must change immediately. We call upon Tatte to raise the wage for FOH workers to at least match the Massachusetts minimum wage, $12.75, and to also raise the wage for BOH/non-tipped workers by $2.75.
