Starbucks employee on strike

Zoe Connor, an Auckland Starbucks worker, joins the world’s first-ever strike against the multinational café chain in 2005. Ten branches of Starbucks went on strike to call for a minimum wage of $12 an hour. They won increased wages and conditions, and three years later $12 an hour became the nationwide minimum wage for all workers. In 2018 the adult minimum wage was $16.50 an hour.
