No laying off on layoffs

Starbucks announced Thursday that they would be laying off 100 global store development employees, including 25 here at the Seattle headquarters.

From what this story said, the “global store development” division of the coffee giant works in facilities, design, construction and real estate. The company chief operating officer gave the usual press-fodder about “providing the best quality product to our customers” and completely ignored any acknowledgement that the economy is at a current state of absolute suck. I suppose that’s not in his job description, but c’est la vie.

If company-wide layoffs have trickled into things at Starbucks, I wonder which corporation might be next.
