Starbucks fired Sam Amato after he’d devoted 13 years to them because he gathered with other team members to organize ways of ensuring they all have what they need to survive and thrive!
So… your good ol host Shift quested deep into the interwebs to find Sam and bring him here for you to meet him and learn about the details of how Sam and his community are pushing back against Starbucks in a fun, sweet conversation.
You’ll be glad you joined us for this one!
After breaking down the events and timeline, Sam and Shift talk about:
What happens when a corporate overlord masquerading as a commonplace cafe manipulates its staff and treats human beings like tokens on a game board?
-- NATIONWIDE STRIKES!!
What happens when a simplistic yet stunningly talented performing powerhouse grows up in front of the general public while being kept on leashes and in cages by abusive handlers unless she’s being forced to perform on cold microphones?
-- Global friendship and support networks, unprecedentedly rapid legal education to the masses, and the most fabulous protests the world has ever known!!
