Shares of Starbucks Corp., one of the world's largest coffee companies, are in a corrective trend around 98.00.
Yesterday, the traditional annual strike of coffee shop workers in the United States took place, which was timed to coincide with Red Mug Day, when stores give souvenirs to visitors, which is why traditionally, there are huge queues in stores. For years, employees have been pushing for the corporation to pay them extra on these days by changing the terms of their employment contracts, but this time, team members unhappy with recent layoffs have also joined the protests, which has already led to a slowdown in some places in large US cities.
