Thousands of Starbucks workers strike on Red Cup Day

Thousands of Starbucks employees throughout the US staged a walkout on perhaps the most hectic day of the year for the coffee shop. On Red Cup Day, the store gives away reusable cups with any holiday drink order.

Organisers say this was the largest strike yet in the two-year-old effort to unionize the company’s stores.

Union leader Michelle Eisen spoke to BBC News about the reasons behind this coordinated work stoppage.
