I just wanted to take some time to thank everyone who signed this petition. We still haven't reached our early goal of 2k petitioners, but we're on the right path.
As many of you may know, Starbucks announced a dramatic new overhaul of the partner experience which will include a salary increase for all Baristas and Shift Supervisors. This is very exciting news. It's been a long time coming. It is our hope that the average wage for baristas is 10.00 an hour.
We will not know more until January, with the raise increase is poised to take place. We still believe that sick time for EVERY PARTNER is something that's important.
Thank you to everyone who has signed this petition.
