The Seattle Times interviewed Erin Hatton on Starbucks workers in Seattle moving towards unionization. Organizing food-service workers has historically been difficult because of high rates of turnover, Hatton said. “I suspect companies such as Starbucks got away with for a long time throwing workers a few bones and being seen as a good employer relative to the many worse employers,” Hatton said.
