After years of pressure from its workers, Starbucks announced that it will be raising wages for all its workers to $15 an hour in the next three years.
More than 30% of Starbucks workers already make at least $15 an hour, thanks to worker organizing over the past decade. More than 10,000 Starbucks workers signed on to demand this raise, and they won.
