After hearing the following news from Amy Goodman:

Costco, Starbucks and Whole Foods Fight Proposed Labor Law

In labor news, executives from Costco, Starbucks and Whole Foods have launched a campaign to block the passage of the Employee Free Choice Act, which would make it easier for workers to form unions. The three retail giants have proposed a so-called compromise bill that strips the key portions of the legislation. The companies want to preserve the current law that allows employers to force workers to hold a secret ballot election before recognizing a union. Under the Employee Free Choice Act, workers would be able form a union if a majority of them signed a card or a petition.

I’ll be boycotting the three companies until one of two things happen:

  1. they change their mind, or
  2. the Employee Free Choice Act is passed without their help.

Until then, I’ll be very sad.
