Keep Premium Pay for the Remainder of the Pandemic
We are demanding that the premium/hazard pay of an added $3/hour be extended for as long as the CDC and/or WHO declare COVID-19 to be a threat in North America, as well as the entire duration that masks are mandatory for partners to wear while working. Even though the government is loosening measures, it is important that partners be paid fairly for risking their health by going out and serving their communities as baristas. This is a multi-billion dollar company, so please pay us for what we are worth.
Why is this important?
Starbucks admits to being "committed to caring for the health and well-being of [their] partners," yet is failing to do so by removing the premium pay. This pandemic is not over.
