"Unions are cool again": A new generation of workers advocates for unionization -

"The number of Americans who belong to labor unions had been dropping for decades. But suddenly, in the last year or so, the winds have changed.

Since December, when a Starbucks in Buffalo was the first to vote to unionize, workers at more than 200 Starbucks stores have followed suit. (Yes, they vote one store at a time.) One Starbucks picketer in Denver said, "We've had a lot of intimidation and a lot of efforts to stop us. But we're here!"
