Consulting

every time a consultant glorifies their coffee addiction and reveres Starbucks, it grinds my gears. But this is cruel - close the damn stores.

Haven’t they gone to drive thru only? Isn’t that one of the better retail jobs right? Making coffee with v limited interaction to other people. Would think being a cashier at a grocery store would be much tougher...

Totally agree that having your coffee may not be essential (even tho my massive headache from lack of caffeine would suggest differently), but to me it’s also, how do we think about low risk options of keeping the economy going and keep some of our jobs. Yes, we can all hunker down for a few weeks, but what if it’s months?

No one is forced to work, and baristas will be laid off if stores close

But should they? Other baristas and small restaurants would lay off people- totally understand. But Starbucks has ~ 2.6 Billion in cash as per last 10K. Shouldn’t the big companies be more generous in these times?

I don’t know. People need to eat to survive but don’t need coffee? I don’t know what is life critical anymore.

They want the stores closed. If you quit you can’t get unemployment.
