How Starbucks workers strike can affect sales on Red Cup Day


With its annual tradition, Starbucks will buy free limited-edition cups on Nov 16.

The Red Cup Day is an annual promotion symbolizing the holiday season in winter.

The designs on the cups have varied over the years, featuring holiday decor and the winter season.

Starbucks encourages customers to use the reusable cups for a 10-cent discount and 25 bonus reward points.

The move is part of the brand’s effort to cut its waste by 50% by 2030.

Last year, 2,000 employees staged a strike on Red Cup Day. But Starbucks still made highest sales.

This year, over 200 Starbucks locations will be impacted by strikes again on Red Cup Day.

The union representing the workers, who demand fair pay, say that thousands will strike again.
