Ed Sheeran’s Starbucks shift angers the union: “Straight up embarrassing”

Ed Sheeran has been on his Mathmatics tour and at each stop, he's been surprising people by working at different local businesses. He's done everything from serving hot dogs in Chicago to helping out at a Lego store in Bloomington, Minnesota. But his latest adventure at a Starbucks in Seattle didn't make the Starbucks union very happy.


The union's social media account posted a picture of Ed making Pumpkin Spice Lattes at the Starbucks on August 25 and said, "It's really embarrassing that Ed Sheeran is working at a Starbucks that has been accused of not treating its workers well."


They also pointed out that most of the people in the picture wearing green aprons were actually managers, not regular baristas. And to make things worse, workers at another Starbucks down the street were struggling because they didn't have enough staff.


The union ended their post by saying, "@edsheeran, you can do better."


Starbucks responded by saying that the Starbucks where Ed was working is not part of the union and there are no problems there. They also mentioned that the store's schedule wasn't changed just for Ed and many Starbucks employees said it was their "favorite day ever."
