Barista backlash

 
 A truck with a sign that reads “We want to make coffee everyday, not run marketing events throughout the entire year” is parked on a street near Gangnam station in southern Seoul on Thursday. Starbucks baristas paid for the mobile signs to drive around Seoul to protest the company’s promotional events that have left them overworked and understaffed. The protest follows the Sept. 28 free reusable plastic cup event, which left some Starbucks coffee shops with a backlog of several hours after orders poured in. [YONHAP]
