This guy is more worthy of our attention than the kid whose daddy paid for him to go to almost space.

@szymonbrycki Depends on the State, some of them are shitty even by US standards. For sure not a good look for Starbucks though. Not sure why people keep going to non union locations. Just boycott them.

@szymonbrycki @TrackerRoo 100% legal under states that have "Right to Work" laws, which is an intentionally misleading name for laws that let companies say "We can fire you for any reason whatsoever except discrimination, if you can prove it".

@szymonbrycki @TrackerRoo @faoluin it's legal in England too. Discrimination cases are extremely hard to fight against. They rarely end up in a tribunal

@szymonbrycki @TrackerRoo In Switzerland, if I know my working contract laws right, firing somebody on the simple premise they are unionizing is considered wrongful termination and can lead the company in big problems.

Simply put, effectively unthinkable in Europe ^^"

@l4p1n @szymonbrycki @TrackerRoo it's technically illegal in the US too but it's rare for them to actually get in trouble for it. It seems like the government is getting pretty fed up with Starbucks though, they're already under investigation for other illegal union-busting activities.
