Doing Their Part to Avoid "Fiscal Cliff"
Starbucks is doing their part to help the country from going over the "fiscal cliff."
The company's CEO Howard Schultz is telling his employees at the chain's 120 Washington, D.C. stores to write "come together" on customers' cups on Thursday and Friday. Schultz hopes that the message will get through to battling Democrats and Republicans leading up to the January 1st deadline to come to an agreement on the budget to avoid tax increases and harsh government spending reductions.
In an interview with Reuters, Schultz said, "We're paying attention, we're greatly disappointed in what's going on and we deserve better."
