• Student loan assistance for long time partners.
    This is important because long time partners such as myself have grown with and supported the company through all its many changes over the years. We have been faithful and worked hard to make the company what it is today.

  • Raise hourly wages and bring back merit increases!
    Starbucks is positioned as a leader in the fast food/service industry, and consequently bears a responsibility to make fair decisions regarding compensation and benefits to its employees.

  • Money as an incentive when coworkers don't come in
    When partners don't show, it puts a lot of pressure on the present baristas to make every moment matter. If we have an incentive for working hard while a partner is missing, were more determined to push through and work hard.

  • Higher hourly rate for supervisors of high volume stores
    Like so many of you out there, my store is my home away from home. Having worked at three different locations, I've been able to understand the ins and outs of different stores and the varying demands each store has based on its business and volume. Before I transferred to my current store, my last store earned on average $2,200-3,000 a day. The store I'm at currently makes anywhere from $7-9000 a day. To say that we should all be held to the same standard is wishful thinking. From a company standards perspective, yes this is true. From a monetary standpoint, absolutely not. Shift supervisors working at incredibly high volume stores are not currently being paid their worth. Being responsible for a team of 8 or 9 people at any given time, not to mention driving sales, and constantly having to call facilities because everything in the store keeps breaking is a daily occurrence for me and I'm sure for countless others out there. Free drinks and one free food item are nice, but they don't do anything for those of us who don't drink coffee or for those who bring their lunches to work. Most of the time, I'm lucky if I even get a break because something has broken or a computer has crashed or something has pulled me away from any sort of break I might need to keep my sanity. Feeling like I'm not going to work in vain is why I'm writing this letter. I know I'm not the only one who feels as though they are not appreciated, not paid enough, is overworked, and constantly chasing their tail while getting paid an amount that can barely cover rent. If our store managers earn a pay increase for managing higher volume stores as well as receiving a QUARTERLY bonus for the success of their store, then shouldn't the supervisors who help them achieve these goals be given bonuses or pay increases as well?

  • UberX vs UberSelect
    It's more important that UberSelect drivers make money than receive more calls that don't give them the opportunity to make a profit. I understand Uber wants to keep UberSelect drivers busy driving but at who's cost?

  • Reinstate the Minimum Fare
    With the latest rate cuts, the fares are so ridiculously low that many rides - especially the shorter ones - now only earn the driver only $2–$3. By reinstating the minimum fare, these rides will increase the drivers’ portion to a more reasonable amount to at least cover expenses.

  • Howard Schultz, Meet With Your Baristas!
    Our schedules constantly change, many of us struggle to get enough work hours, we can't plan our lives around our jobs, and we find it difficult if not impossible to call out sick because of the difficulty of finding coverage. These things contribute to a stressful work environment and decrease morale at our stores. We've seen great, hardworking coworkers leave the company for these reasons. We, the baristas of Starbucks, experience these things firsthand, and we are the very people within the company who should be proposing solutions. We want to talk to Howard Schultz in person, and have a conversation about how we can move forward together to make Starbucks better. Please sign on in support!

  • Bring Back The CAP
    We believe that moving to a CAP system will restore much of the lost and damaged AFL brand by increasing the respect and value of players, fans and sponsors. A CAP system helps teams to compete for talent in a way that drives all involved towards the best and most valuable market solution thereby delivering the highest probability of success with competition driving all involved to a higher standard.

  • The Uber application often doesn't work
    I am spending hours on the road in prime business location at ideal times and losing income in the moment b/c the uber app is failing to function normally. the uber app often loses fares and fails do disclose fares for my record keeping purposes. sometimes these failures are due to pending updates, sometimes uber knows but doesn't tell drivers that the app isn't working. all of this costs drivers in many ways. Uber should be responsible for these losses and should disclose the functional status of the app at any given time

  • Massage establishments should stop keeping so much of the cut
    The public doesn't realize just how little their therapist receives. What's worse is that as they try to stay competitive, they keep lowering the price of massages, which also lowers wages AND tip amount. People tend to follow the 15%-20% rule. But on a $60 massage, that's only $12, far short of the norm of $20 per each hour. The public should realize that 15%-20% is great for a server. In 60 minutes, your server might only spend about 10 minutes total with you between your order, bringing your food, cashing you out, while your therapist devotes the entire 60 minutes to JUST you!

  • Decrease The Service Fee
    Uber, while being nearly 6 years old, is "still [young and] in it's infancy," as they like to say. The driver app, after all this time, is riddled with bugs and flaws. They are continually trying to meet a halfway point of satisfaction between the riders and drivers. Riders want to pay less, drivers want more money, and with the app as screwy as it has been, I personally, whom uber takes 20% as a service fee for uber X, think that even 20% is too much to pay for service, especially with how crappy the service is. The Uber Driver app currently has me thrown from one side of the city to the next, approximating 10-15 minutes to arrive to a pick up, even if I'm in an area that requires more attention, and when asked if this can be fixed, all uber could do is send me a reply claiming that they are trying to create a better cleaner system and to just sit tight and be patient. I'm sorry, but no. For the way things run, Uber honestly deserves only 5% of a service fee from all drivers. Recently, in September 2015, they announced that all new drivers would have a 28% service fee. That isn't fair to any new drivers, because they are using the same problematic system, and they have just the same reasons as everybody else who has joined uber in the past. It is imperative that Uber drop their service fee for ALL drivers, old and new, down to 5% until they can at least get their system in gear. If this is done, more veteran drivers would be more willing to drive, even if it wasn't surging, and uber would still be bringing millions of dollars to their wallets every year. Customers are still paying cheap for their rides, drivers wouldn't struggle so bad to make a living, and uber would still profit from their service fees. Everybody wins.

  • Adjusted sick/vacation pay for hourly managers
    Hourly paid managers cannot take a sick day or a full weeks vacation without taking a hit of at least $100 on a paycheck. As an employee who is expected to work 45 hours a week, there shouldn't be a concern about missing pay because you are sick or taking a "paid" vacation. This leads to illness being brought to the stores because sick employees feel as though they cannot afford to take a sick day as well as vacations not being taken because they will not be fully paid.
