The HufPo article says minimum wage in 1968 was $1.60 per hour; TODAY'S equivalent would make that $10.74, adjusted for inflation…So when people can't understand why the discontent minimum wage workers can't make it on today's minimum wage...they don't get this simple fact...their head is stuck back in 1968...not a bad year! Great year for music and you could actual afford to buy it back then...Different reality, different cost of living and a system (today) that is rigged to make the working people of this country, economic sharecroppers and where the few at the top of this (current) economic pyramid dream of the total return of true Feudalism (economic slavery).

So, campers, anyone who uses that fact minimum wage was $1.60 without factoring in the cost of living/inflation/purchasing power is making a fake argument...IT JUST AIN'T TRUE...Put your hand on your wallet and run...! Seattle raises minimum wage to $15 an hour

  2. 2. Seattle raises minimum wage to $15 an hourMartina Phelps says the Seattle City Council's historic vote Monday to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour could change her life. Phelps, 22, earns $9.47 per hour working for a McDonald's restaurant near downtown. She wants to move out of her mother's South Seattle home, and she wants to go back to school. She says those things could happen now that the city will have the nation's highest minimum wage. "It's hard right now," she told USA TODAY hours before the midafternoon vote. "I have been trying to save up for school, but I just can't do it. This would mean a lot." The council unanimously approved the measure before a packed house. The plan, which includes a lower training wage aimed at teenagers, will phase in the higher, local minimum over three to seven years, depending on the size of the business and benefits they provide employees. Next April 1, when the plan takes effect, every worker will get at least a $1-an-hour raise. City officials estimate that about a quarter of workers earn less than $15 an hour. Full-time work at that rate translates to about $31,000 a year. A trade group representing corporate franchises said it would sue to overturn the plan, saying it puts Seattle owners at a disadvantage to other small businesses. Washington already has the highest state minimum wage at $9.32 an hour, well above the federal minimum of $7.25. Seattle's Chamber of Commerce initially balked at the wage plan. Craig Dawson, CEO of Retail Lockbox in Seattle, was among those suggesting early on that small and minority businesses would be put at risk by the increase in personnel costs. Compromises were put forward, and a rancorous Council committee meeting last week resulted in some adjustments to the plan that appeared to pave the way for easy passage. "A year ago, $15 was just a number on fast food strikers' picket signs," Working Washington, a coalition of labor and community groups, said in a statement issued Monday. "Today it's set to become reality for 100,000 Seattle workers." Seattle venture capitalist Nick Hanauer, a key backer of the effort, says the city is a prosperous but costly place to live. "Fifteen dollars is a very conservative number that we know for certain the economy can support," he told the Los Angeles Times. “Fifteen is a good solid number for a place like this, but probably is too much for a small town in Arkansas where living costs are much, much, much lower." The ordinance was drafted by an advisory group of labor, business and non-profit professionals. In a contentious meeting last week, a City Council committee agreed to delay implementation of the ordinance to next April instead of Jan. 1. They rejected
  3. 3. amendments that would have sped up phase-ins and would have excluded tips from total compensation. The committee also approved a sub-minimum wage for teenagers. Businesses employing more than 500 workers would be required to pay $15 an hour by 2017, or 2018 if health care is offered. Smaller businesses would have five to seven years to phase in the increase. Part of employees' tips and benefits could be applied toward the higher minimum for as long as 11 years. The plan was approved unanimously by the City Council members at the meeting, indicating that passage into law was likely. "Seattle, and other cities, is taking direct action to close our nation's huge income gap because the federal and state governments have failed to do so," City Councilman Nick Licata said. "By significantly raising the minimum wage, Seattle's prosperity will be shared by more people and create a sustainable model for continued growth." A group called 15 Now is collecting signatures for a ballot measure that would hasten the timeline to $15 for all workers. The measure would amend the city's charter to create an immediate wage hike for large businesses, a three-year phase-in for organizations with fewer than 250 full- time employees, and the elimination of the training wage. 15 Now needs more than 30,000 signatures to make it on the ballot. Crystal Thompson, 33, told The Seattle Times she has been working at a local Domino's Pizza for five years and still makes minimum wage. She says her responsibilities have grown, and she sometimes is responsible for opening and closing the store.

USED JOB SHACK INSIDER… Barista Interview Interview Details – Interview is focused on questions evaluation one's attitudes towards providing great customer service. The company is also looking for very positive, happy, and respectful candidates. In the same vein it helps to be mild mannered and calm. They are also looking for respect towards authority and clients in demeanor and responses. Interview Question – • Tell me of a time where you provided exceptional customer service. ==================================== INTERVIEW QUESTIONS: STARBUCKS The next step is a more in depth interview, about 45 minutes, with the same recruiter. All questions are behavioral questions in the STAR format. They will go over the "how’s" of your resume more than the "what’s". Be prepared with specific examples. Feel free to use names of coworkers to help make your stories more real and personal. The questions I was asked: • Tell me about a time when you had an uncooperative coworker or a coworker you didn't get along with. What was the situation, why were they uncooperative, what was the result? • Tell me about a time you had to plan out a project. What was your role, etc? • Tell me about a time you had to have a tough conversation with someone at work. • Tell me about a time you had to bring a co-workers performance up.
  9. 9. • They will ask probing questions about additional actions you took, why you think coworkers were acting in a particular way, etc. Make sure you're able to get as specific as possible about these situations and your actions in them. I passed and was immediately asked for possible dates for a final interview. • Tell me about a time when you had a communication breakdown with a co- worker or with your team. • Tell me about a time you had to have a tough conversation with a co- worker (exact question from the phone interview) • What are your strengths? Give an example of a time you displayed this. • What are your weaknesses? What are you doing to work on this? • What are you doing for your personal and professional development? • Tell me about a time when you didn't have all the answers or didn't know what to do next (this may be the most important question, because they told me they usually never get good answers to this. Luckily, mine was high scope and relevant) • Tell me about a time when you had to plan out a project. ==================================== Barista - I applied online and the process took 1+ week Interview Details – Online application company wide, submit one first walking into a store to fill out a paper application is a wasted trip. Follow up in 1-3 days, ask for the store manager (not shift supervisor), or stop in and drop of a resume. More than one Starbucks manager has told me they always interview the people who care enough to follow up. Actual interview is rather standard, research Starbucks and stress customer service. Ultimately Starbucks is selling customer service in the disguise of coffee, if you are passionate about providing great service make sure your interviewer knows. Interview Question – • Why do you want to work for Starbucks? ==================================== Barista - I applied online and the process took 2 weeks Interview Details – Online application - was contacted within a week by assistant store manager. Interviewed in store with manager, and had a second interview with another store manager at another location. The process is formal but not difficult. Most of the questions are feelers on how you handle working with others, working in a retail environment, and what kind of contributions you bring to the store. Interview Question – • Name a time where someone was disappointed or dissatisfied with your work. • How did you react to this situation and what would you do to remedy it? ==================================== Shift Supervisor Interview - I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks Interview Details – Had an interview with the store manager of my home store. I had a second interview with a neighboring Starbucks manager. Typical questions such as "Tell me about a time when you coached an employee and the outcome."
  10. 10. A few days after the second interview, I got a call from the first manager with an offer in which I accepted. It took my process 30 days to complete because I had requested to put in a two weeks’ notice at my previous job before I started. The process probably would've only taken 2 weeks instead of 4 if not for the circumstance. The onboarding process is done before your actual first day of work. It usually takes 3-5 hours and consists of filling out paperwork such as the I9 and W4 forms. You do get paid for working the onboarding process. You also do a coffee tasting during that time and will spend a majority of it reading company policy materials, safety concerns etc. They will provide you your aprons at that time as well. My barista training is taking place in another store. How long you are in the training process depends on how fast you can learn. What they mistakenly forgot to tell me tell me during my offer is that during your initial "training" period you do not get any portion of the tips because you are technically not "contributing" to the stores profit! I think that was pretty shady of them to tell me after the fact, so I feel like that is something that should be addressed. Interview Question – • Tell me about a time when you thought you were not going to complete a project or projects on time. • What did you do to try to meet the deadline?" ==================================== 1670 E.

She was nice and friendly apologized for the wait and the interview began. It wasn't much of an interview she asked basic questions such as "tell me about yourself, why do you want to work at staples"? Why were you unemployed for a few months'?

  23. 23. TIPSTER: “Submissions are reviewed on a rolling basis.” This means that if they haven’t had any one come in and impress them, they may (if they have to) start going through these online applications. If you REALLY want to work with animals and with people who think like you, then, do yourself a big favor and make yourself a master of this place (what they do, how they do and what makes them successful). Then fill out the online applicant, dress like you would to work there and go over at a non-peak time to introduce yourself to a manager and/or the staff. TIPSTER #2: Make a dry run over there at a busy time and watch and observe: • Observe the customer traffic through the store to get an idea as to how busy or rushed you would be if you worked there. • Observe if the staff is helpful. Are they smiling and working with the customers? • Get a basic feel for the layout of the store – where everything is. • Look at how organized the store is. Is there plenty of merchandise on the shelves? Is the merchandise neat and organized? Are the displays attractive and have curb appeal? • Is the manager on the floor? Is the manager helping or watching the staff? Go to Yelp to read the consumer reviews for the store. Take some notes about what people like and complained about. Review all your INTEL. Do you like what you saw? If so, go back dressed similar to what the sales associates were wearing (or just clean clothes) and introduce yourself and impress them with how serious you are!
