Chile: Starbucks Employees on Hunger Strike

In Chile, a cup of coffee at Starbucks costs more than the baristas’ wages for one hour of work. This is what the 3 union leaders [es] on hunger strike in Chile state through a handwritten sign in this video [es]. They demand Starbucks to comply with only 4 out of the original 25 demands [es]: adjusting their wages which have been the same through 7 years despite inflation, include a lunch subvention, provide employees with uniforms and assist with transportation costs for those who live far from work.
