Daniel Gross is an organizer, advocate, and attorney for low-wage retail and food workers. As a barista, Mr. Gross helped launched the first union campaign at Starbucks which has since expanded across the country and garnered support from around the world. He is the founding director of Brandworkers, a non-profit organization that empowers retail and food employees with social change tools. Mr. Gross is the co-author with Staughton Lynd of "Labor Law for the Rank & Filer: Building Solidarity While Staying Clear of the Law" (PM Press) which argues for a solidarity unionism approach to labor organizing based on member initiative and direct action, rather than hierarchical unionism.
