Re: “Tall Union Tries Venti Organization of Starbucks

Well, yes, there are many Mom & Pop sweatshops. But there are economies of scale. If you've ever looked at employers' books while negotiating labor contracts then you know that not all employers are hoarding pots of cash in the basement. Many small employers legitimately go out of business because they can't make a profit relative to their economic environment. Like it or not, unions have to deal with such realities--of which, is companies like Starbucks and Wal-Mart are corporate giants that rearrange and destroy local economies that allow Mom & Pop places to survive.
