Starbucks Cups Get Political Message
Employees in the Washington, DC area are being asked to scribble “come together” on Starbucks cups Thursday and Friday.
It’s the first time employees at Starbucks cafes are being asked to write anything other than customers’ names on cups.
While companies generally steer clear of politics to avoid alienating customers, the plea to “Come Together” is a sentiment unlikely to cause controversy. If anything, Starbucks could score points with customers and burnish its image as a socially conscious company.
