Washington, DC — Today, Andrew O’Neill, Indivisible’s Legislative Director, released the following statement:
“We want to thank Democrats on the Senate HELP Committee, led by Chairman Bernie Sanders, for holding former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz accountable for his attempts to grind down unionization efforts in Starbucks stores. Under questioning from Democrats, Schultz got pretty steamed – he even refused to answer Chairman Sanders when asked whether he had ever intimidated or threatened unionizing workers. He later admitted that he withheld benefits from employees at unionized locations. Schultz may have been a little jittery today, but wealthy, union-busting corporate lackeys like him deserve a few extra shots when they attack workers’ rights.
“All workers deserve to be dripped out in the protections that a unionized workplace provides. We appreciate Senate Democrats fighting for workers at Starbucks and around the country, and filtering out the union-busting from greedy CEOs. We look forward to seeing triple venti-sized protections for workers, like the PRO Act, move through Congress this year.”
