A living Wage.  Benefits.  Great Coffee.

We at the Barista Union believe that workers in the coffee production industry should to be treated not as short-term employees but as PROFESSIONALS who deserve standardized wages, affordable health insurance and the ability to begin providing for their future in the same manner that professionals in other sectors of the production industry do.

Furthermore, we believe that in the long run this will make cafes more productive & profitable, will actually strengthen local economies & will, for the first time in the food production industry, empower employees to consider both their long-term health & future fiscal security.  If these changes were to be made on a widespread scale it would represent a remarkable change to the economic landscape of this country.  Remember, there are legions of us.

Vive la revolucion.
