Aside from its growing union issues, Starbucks this week reversed course on its own previously announced employee vaccine-or-test mandate after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected the Biden administration vaccine-or-test mandate. Starbucks told employees this week that the company will no longer require its US workers to be vaccinated or undergo weekly testing as it had planned. In addition, the company appeared to acknowledge some supply chain issues while cutting some store hours and warned customers to expect shorter store hours, more store closings and some items not being available at some store locations. Likewise, McDonalds, Chipotle and Shake Shack are among a number of QSRs that recently announced a reduction in store hours or some adjustments in services being made to accommodate the ongoing labor shortage. McDonalds estimated their store hours were being cut by approximately 10% on average across 13,000 US locations.
