• Allow simple acrylic nails at Starbucks
    I believe people should join in because it is about freedom of expression. There are many people who have tattoos and colored hair so why not nails. I took a week off from work and was able to finally get nails. I realized that I missed having this part of me throughout the past two years. I felt very confident and I wish I was able to take that to my workplace. Having the freedom to wear nails fulfilled my need for creativity that allows human beings to grow and to represent who they are as an individual.

  • Stop PMG DeJoy: Protect the USPS and Election Integrity
    We North Carolinians for Voting Integrity in State Elections and Defense of the Public Postal Service, the postal public, along with our neighbors, families, postal workers and the wider community, continue to be distressed by the intentional deterioration of the service provided by the USPS, considered by most of us to be a national treasure. Under the mis-leadership of PMG Louis DeJoy postal jobs have become more difficult while the decreased service standards make social communications and commercial life more difficult. DeJoy’s 10 Year Plan, includes the rotten apple of deliberate slowdown of first class mail which, if implemented, guarantees the continued worsening of this situation. PMG DeJoy has also, predating his appointment, contributed to the attack on democracy by engaging in multiple “straw-donor” schemes that are blatant violations of campaign finance laws. He’s thus aided in the election of candidates that are now working hard to restrict voting rights. Primarily an attack on voters of color, it impacts all working people and must be stopped. His corruption seems to have no limits as revealed by the recent reports of his purchasing $300,0000 in bonds from a company owned in part by Ron Bloom, chairperson of the Postal Board of Governors, that has the power to hire and fire the Postmaster General. The Justice Department is investigating his activities in relation to Federal election violations. 20 state Attorney Generals, including NC’s own Josh Stein, have signed a letter to the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) bemoaning the service standards And the PRC has issued its Official Opinion strongly opposing DeJoy’s slowdown of first class mail, too. We cannot allow him to continue to negatively impact our lives.

  • Allow Credit Card Tipping at Starbucks
    As a former Barista/Shift Supervisor, I can assure you Baristas work hard for that money. They are subject to ever-evolving rules, regulations, and recipes. They are asked to work at top speed and efficiency, push sales up, and be kind even in extreme situations. They deserve every cent. As a customer, I want to make sure they are rewarded for their service. The traditional reward is tipping.

  • 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.

  • Allow Unnatural Hair Colors
    Hair color is a way to show healthy individuality among people, especially young people. We are in a day and age where almost everyone coming into our stores have unnatural hair color. Unnatural hair colors is no longer a distraction and should be allowed in the work place. Allowing dyed hair could also improve your employees mood and mental health. Being restricted in this way can leave young adults feeling depressed, reminding them of strict schools they most likely detested. We should keep our company's dress codes updated with the times. Not allowing unnatural hair color is very outdated and needs to be retired.

  • Tattoos at Tidal Wave
    The primary concern I have with the tattoo policy is the possibility of overheating. When working at a car wash like Tidal Wave one spends the vast majority of their day outside in the hot sun. I personally have had multiple instances where I was simply too hot to continue working and had to take a break to cool down. I love this company and the services we provide, but I believe this change needs to be made for the safety of our employees.
