A new Starbucks employee said she arrived for her first day of work to find the store's entire staff on strike.

Mikey said she showed up on Friday for her training at the Starbucks store on Genesee Street in Cheektowaga, New York, a suburb of Buffalo. She captured what she saw and posted it under the username @mikeys_titanic on TikTok, racking up over 675,000 views.

"Just got hired at Starbucks," Mikey said in text over the footage. "Arrived and the workers are on strike outside the entrance."
