At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Starbucks offered it’s employees the option of either taking paid time off or continuing to work with a temporary $3 raise. For many Starbucks workers who rely on multiple jobs, this $3 was enough to keep them working while much of the economy shut down. But now, the option to take time off has ended and the temporary $3 raise is set to end on June 1st. As Starbucks prepares to open its doors to the public, they are simultaneously removing compensation for the dangers faced when working during a global pandemic. Not only does this leave workers physically vulnerable to the virus, but with the economy still in shambles, it puts workers in danger of not being able to afford food or housing.
