Starbucks Spit In And Recylce ‘Our Coffee’ Into One Cup

Starbucks must now pay its California staff more than $100 million in back pay.

Says Starbucks spokeswoman Valerie O’Neil:

“Starbucks believes that our shift supervisors deserve their fair share of the tips that they receive from the tip jars in our California stores,” the statement said. ”This case was filed by a single former barista and, despite Starbucks request, the interests of the shift supervisors were not represented in this litigation.”

Starbucks arrived in the UK and told its customers to enjoy “our coffee”, as if they had lent it to for a small fee.

If you could return “out coffee” when done, spit it back in the free handy container, or cup, Starbucks baristas could repackage it and loan it on as a Latte, or wait until it passes through the system for a Honey Frappuccino…
