Starbucks to get human with scheduling

Starbucks (SBUX -1.1%) says it will enact changes to the scheduling of its workers.

The development appears to be a reaction to a New York Times article about the difficulty of a single mother working as barista  to manage the company's automated scheduler.

More human interaction is promised by the coffee giant.

    It's good business to be a humane employer. The Starbucks image is clean and respectable, an asset in relation to their customer base. Keeping it that way is important.
