New York IWW: Support FW Corey Wright

New York IWW: Support FW Corey Wright.

Starbucks barista Corey Wright was fired Tuesday, May 10th, for
pressing void on the register when a customer changed their mind and decided
not to purchase a bottle of Starbucks brand Ethos water. This 25yr old,
father to 3 young children, gave 7 yrs of his life in service to Starbucks
Coffee & Tea. Just months ago, Corey was responsible for going against
District Manager Adler’s wish to keep the Union Square Starbucks open after
EMS warned of exposure to an airborne flesh-eating virus in the store.
Corey protected New Yorkers health & safety in his bravery that day. In
gratitude, the company terminated his job over a void of $2.17. Starbucks
believes that voiding products means the employee is pocketing the money
from the transaction and giving the customer the product. The company was
unable to provide Corey with physical video or photo proof that he pocketed
any money.

ACTION:

CALL OR TEXT THE COWARDLY BOSS THAT FIRED HIM, District Manager Adler
Ludvigsen at 917-497-6183

and CALL THE CUSTOMER COMPLAINT LINE at 1-800-235-2883. You can site
Starbucks Retail Store 7378, located at Union Square East in Manhattan, NY.

Corey is supported by the IWW Starbucks Workers Union
