A 'Wobbly' Picket Line Coming To Your Nearest Starbucks?
by Michael Fox
Well not likely, but the venerable International Workers of the World, formed in 1905 according to the article in the Seattle Times, Wobblies try to unionize a Starbucks in New York are trying to organize a Starbucks in lower Manhattan. The success will depend on the unit question, a store as the union wants, or a 50 store district as the company argues. My guess is that bourgeois side of BoBo's (from David Brooks, Bobos in Paradise) will win out in case a picket line ever bars any Starbucks. Of course John Kerry won't cross. But will he send some one?
