Video: Starbucks inducted into Paid Sick Days Hall of Shame

Starbucks offers paid sick days to their corporate employees and managers, but not to baristas and cashiers in their stores — the people actually handling food and drinks.

In fact, in 2009 Starbucks took away the personal days many Starbucks store employees used when they needed to take a sick day.

Watch this video from Wednesday, July 13th when 30+ paid sick days supporters gathered outside the Starbucks on 4th and Cherry in downtown Seattle to highlight the need for paid sick days — especially for workers in the food service industry.
