The Starbucks in Boone, NC becomes the first NC store to unionize!

Last week, the Starbucks in my town - Boone, NC- became the first Starbucks location in NC to vote for union representation, and it was a landslide vote: 33-2 in favor. This is a BIG deal, folks. It's like dominoes - more and more stores, hopefully, will vote to unionize. And there was no discernible pushback from Starbucks on this, either.

Boone is a college town, and it is a blue oasis in a sea of red. Makes me happy, though, that this has happened. Of course, there have been a lot of negative comments from the usual suspects on social media, but ironically most of the comments have been bashing Starbucks instead of the the workers themselves. Sometimes it's funny to read comments from people who "almost" get it!
