Starbucks Workers United to Strike Over Alleged Discrimination Against Queer & Trans Workers

Hundreds of Starbucks stores across the US are set to go on strike this week in response to the company's treatment of queer and trans workers. The union representing baristas, Starbucks Workers United, said more than 150 stores representing nearly 3,500 workers have pledged to join the strikes. The dispute began last week when the union alleged that dozens of US stores were not allowing employees to decorate for Pride month. The strike is set to be a major test for Starbucks, as it remains to be seen how the company will respond to the demands of the union.
