Starbucks, the country’s highest-grossing coffee company, has been tainted by a startling number of controversies. Customers have recently blamed the company’s pricing hikes on corporate greed. Following Starbucks’ disclosure of a 31 percent profit increase in the most recent quarter, the price raises have been seen as proof of “corporate greed.”
The coffee chain’s dependability has also been harmed by ongoing shortages of supplies, personnel, and shop hours. Customers are enraged by these shortages because of the irregularity and disruption they impose in their lives. Customers’ dissatisfaction with Starbucks is currently a hot issue trending on Twitter, so you can read about it.
Aside from the price hikes, the coffee company has been attacked for how it handled unionization ballots at some of its sites in Buffalo, New York. Starbucks sought to sway the outcome of union voting in Buffalo by using underhanded techniques such as employee intimidation, vote stuffing, and shop closures, according to store employees.
I didn’t expect THAT from Starbucks…
