Starbucks Slash

Several versions of the Business Times, including San Jose and Sacramento, carried the story today that Starbucks is cutting about 600 jobs. New-ish CEO Howard Schultz said the company would lay off 220 employees and leave 380 more jobs unfilled after they are vacated.

“Unfortunately, we have not been organized in a manner that allowed us to have a laser focus on the customer,” Schultz wrote.

There are 10 Starbucks locations in San Francisco, and a whole bunch more in the greater Bay Area. It has not been announced where the cuts will take place.
