Starbucks slashing its corporate workforce

Starbucks plans to slash 5 percent of its corporate workforce as part of a greater overhaul of the company that includes closing hundreds of U.S. stores, expanding its mobile operations and focusing more on China. In an attempt to streamline its business model, Starbucks has already closed hundreds of stores, expanded its mobile offerings, and added more drive-thrus.

I dont see the logic here. the gop just cut corporate rates to the lowest in decades, they also just handed Starbucks a windfall in tax relief and that was supposed to promote growth and trickle down.

The middle management have been cut from many companies as computers out preformed them, it's just continuing that trend. There aren't many jobs that are safe in the next 20yrs as computing and robotics improve. It's easy to think of a few bits of your trade that a robot or computer can't do (at least for a while) but even if they can only do 10% of it that's 1 out of ten jobs go.

All hail our AI overlords.

Your contributions are usually a little more thought out than this one.  Have you considered that they have simply sold all the coffee they can for $5 bucks a cup?  They can continue to sell to their current customers, but without a change in what they are offering, growth doesn't continue.  And really it's food service, so the innovations won't be that innovative.  Also, you can't control the amount of money coming in, but you can control the expenses.
