A popular San Francisco bakery, with international expansion plans, has some dissatisfied workers that are demanding fair wages.
Seems many are paid minimum wage that requires some to hold second jobs to make ends meet. All those great jobs that have been created, but don't pay worth a squat. Time for this company to recognize their employees. Without them, their product might not be so popular.

Tartine Workers Move to Unionize, Say They’ve Been Neglected by the Company
Early yesterday morning, Bay Area employees of Tartine Bakery — the world-famous bakery and rapidly expanding international brand — delivered letters to management to formally declare their intention to unionize, as Mission Local and other local news outlets have reported. In the letter, signed by more than 140 Tartine employees, the workers say they are unionizing in hopes of attaining a fair balance of power between workers and management, as well as “quality benefits, high morale, and good wages.”
If the effort is successful, 200-plus Bay Area employees, spread across four locations in San Francisco and Berkeley, would join the local International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU).
“We weren’t getting the attention we felt like we deserved because they were opening all these new locations, and it started feeling more corporate,” Pat Thomas, a server at Tartine Manufactory, told the labor publication In These Times.
Meanwhile, in comments to media, several Tartine workers expressed dissatisfaction with pay, benefits, and reduced hours. “You can take vacations, but you don’t get paid for them,” Fernando Hernandez, a busser at the Manufactory, told Mission Local. Also speaking to Mission Local, Matthew Torres, a barista at the Berkeley Tartine, said, “Within a week, we were given notice they’d cut our hours. I am working fewer hours and making less money than I ever have.”

Meanwhile, workers told the Chron that most Tartine employees only make minimum wage — a pay rate that forces them into second jobs and long commutes.
