    My Dad was listening to this show, and he said that the owners would lose everything they had if they allowed the workers to eat the cookies (at Starbucks). What is your response to this comment?

    Tyler,

    I’m not sure I follow. Did we mention something about workers eating all the cookies?

    In regards to who wins when Starbucks shops unionize the evidence is pretty clear that both parties win. Higher wages, better working conditions, more job security and benefits make for a more dedicated, less transient work force. In the case of Starbucks it also helps them retain their image of being a socially conscious company that actually cares about their wage slaves.

    If your dad takes a moment to look at the long list of court victories against Starbucks he’ll notice a lot of really important issues won by the workers; none of those has to do with getting free cookies. I hope that helps.
