“Workers deserve the right to organize to improve pay, working conditions, and more. Today, Baltimore Starbucks workers voted to do just that, becoming the first in a Maryland Starbucks to lead this charge. I applaud these trailblazing employees for their initiative, and I will continue to support all Maryland workers who choose to stand together and use their collective power and voice in the workplace.”
