Directed by Oscar-nominated/Emmy Award-winning director, Mark Mori
An inspiring story of collective action against corporate
power and the emotional toll of the fight for dignity
and respect in the workplace.
The film follows the fight of a handful of baristas for living wages and decent lives as they lead Starbucks Workers United (SWU) in strikes and protests against billionaire CEO Howard Schultz's scorched earth union-busting campaign, during which he has illegally fired more than 200 union organizers. But Schultz’s attempt to crush the union quickly backfires resulting in a single store’s pro-union vote in Buffalo, NY, mushrooming to 300+ stores (and adding more every week).
This powerful investigative documentary explores the impact of wealth
concentration on America's working class.
