AlexisStarbucks, Emeryville, CA
I was born and raised in the East Bay and have worked at the Starbucks Cafe in Barnes and Noble on and off for nearly 10 years now. As a mother of two, I am barely able to make ends meet because of my unpredictable schedule with low hours—sometimes just 15 hours instead of the 25 I usually have. While I dream of someday living in my own home, I have to live with my sister. Having a Fair Work Week in Emeryville would allow me to get more hours to provide for my family, budget my time and plan my life.
