I work extremely hard to serve customers at Starbucks. Its not like mcdonalds where a different person owns a franchise, one person is benefiting from this company. A woman i work with has worked for starbucks for over 11 years and only makes a little more than $13. Ive been with the company for a little over 2 years and i only make $9.04. Which is the same amount as a few baristas that have been with the conpany for less than 1 year.
