Episode Notes

Kyle, Greg, and Jordan are joined by Jacob, Kat, and Kit. All are local Salt Lake area Starbucks workers currently in the process of unionizing their stores. In this episode, they discuss their organizing efforts, what unionization would mean in their current jobs and we also discuss a bit about Starbucks' history with unions and how valued they feel as "partners"
