It’s hard to pick sides here. On the one hand, the Starbucks union is literally Hamas while on the other hand, Starbucks nurtured every leftist cause until there was an attempt to unionize its stores. And since unions hit its profit margins that was suddenly a bridge too far. But it’s still a remarkable move even for an administration that embraces every leftist agenda item and its NLRB appointees who are union hacks and radical leftists.
Starbucks is being accused of illegally shutting down six locations in the Los Angeles area to suppress union organizing activity.
A National Labor Relations Board regional director issued a complaint this week, claiming Starbucks shut down nearly two dozen stores across the country to discourage workers from unionizing.
The new NLRB complaint states Starbucks needs to reopen 23 stores – six of which are in the Los Angeles – and issue back pay to workers who were affected by the closures.
Is there such a thing as “illegally closing stores”? What happens if Starbucks doesn’t reopen them, the Biden administration will nationalize Starbucks and prove that it can lose money running a high-end coffee chain?
Starbucks declined to provide a representative for Eyewitness News to interview, but said the six stores that were closed in the L.A. area were not unionized, and instead were closed for safety reasons.
Starbucks claimed that these were “high-incident” stores with a lot of homeless issues and police responses. Companies are allowed to close stores for business reasons. The NLRB has failed to prove that the store closings were not for business reasons.
Only 7 of the stores had unionized.
But the NLRB is integrated with the SEIU radical leftist union which is trying to unionize Starbucks workers.
And so an insane regime that began with the New Deal is trying to run every aspect of a company’s business on the theory that Starbucks is obligated to open stores and provide jobs.
Then maybe the NLRB can come down and clean the toilets after the junkie vagrants are done with them.
