Local row: union vs coffee shop
A good libertarian would say the employer and employee can agree on a wage without anybody getting in the way. But the swipplish café seems to have traded a well-intended plank of the old left for one of the new: hiring a company because some minority owns it (a perversion of the right idea of defending minorities’ individual liberty and merit; being a minority doesn’t matter).

I never went to this place and miss the Wynnewood Pharmacy lunch counter where you could step back in time including with the prices. The town where I worked for 11 years before this had Joe’s Place; same idea. The kind of place where... you’re more likely to see union members than swipples.
