Today is Labor day and most of us are not working and enjoying the day off. Around the world, coffee shops are open and the one person who makes sure that each customer's day starts off right is the Barista. They comes in and work on providing the highest coffee drink quality to their customers. They are always concerned about the quality of their coffee product and will ask the customer if in doubt about the coffee request.
StarBucks Coffee is one corporation that seems to believe in the first check and not the second. Hire the Barista and pay them peanuts. In Chile, last month, some Baristas went on strike for better wages. They were being paid minimum wages and working long hours. They took a stand against their employee and I hope them did well. They have unionized in that country and I have to say that this is a good think for workers in this area of service. I am not a big fan of unionized labor but in some area of the work world you need this in order to make a decent living wage. I have to appland some Baristta's in the states that staged a 1 or 2 days strike in order to bring to light what StarBucks Coffee is doing in Chile.
