Starbucks Partner Slashes 2000 Jobs Over Mass Boycotts

The company running Starbucks in the Middle East (West Asia) has revealed plans of slashing roughly 2000 jobs, following a massive consumer boycott in the wake of the Israeli regime’s war on Gaza.

Franchise owner AlShaya Group is planning to cut 4% of its workforce of 50,000 across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). 

Kuwait-based AlShaya said, “As a result of the continually challenging trading conditions over the last six months, we have taken the sad and very difficult decision to reduce the number of colleagues in our Starbucks MENA stores.”

“We will ensure we give our colleagues leaving the business, and their families, the support they need,” the statement added.
