PSBJ: What the hoax email rescheduling the Starbucks annual meeting was really about

Puget Sound Business Journal, 3/24/2016

When an email hit inboxes early Wednesday morning saying the annual Starbucks (Nasdaq: SBUX) shareholder meeting was rescheduled, the hoax caught the attention of some local news outlets.


A half dozen baristas organized by Working Washington were outside of Wednesday’s meeting handing out coffee sleeves with the hashtag #OurTimeCounts printed on them. During the Q&A portion of the meeting, a Starbucks employee asked Schultz if improving employee scheduling was something Starbucks was considering.
