As a barista at a extremely high volume store, I believe it is necessary for us to be paid a little more. With the expectations of Starbucks, the understaffing, and all that we do I believe we deserve a raise.
Why is this important?
It is important to me and to others because we are the company each worker has an impact on how successful this company is. If we were to get promotions it would show that the company is appreciating us, yes the Starbucks Achievement Plan, is phenomenal, but there are partners who live on their own, those with families if they are doing school they need to be payed more for furthering their education.
