Maybe MoveOn.org Planted the Starbucks Bomb

This morning a bomb went off outside a Starbucks in New York City.

This afternoon, I received this email from Justin Ruben at MoveOn.org:

You’ve probably heard about the illegal, anti-union tactics of retail giants like Walmart. But did you know that Starbucks has been found guilty of those same tactics?

Howard Schultz, Starbucks’ billionaire owner, has made it a priority to keep unions out of Starbucks. But our friends at Brave New Films are fighting back. They’ve put together a video documenting the harassment and intimidation that Starbucks workers have faced.

Check out the surprising video below and sign the memo telling Schultz that Starbucks must let workers exercise their rights and unionize.

Talk about bad timing. Way to go, MoveOn — first you defend terrorists during the war, then you attack a company that just had one of its stores bombed.
