(KTNV) -- Starbucks is taking a public stand on the looming "fiscal cliff."
Chief Executive Officer Howard Schultz is asking workers at its 120 Washington, D.C.-area stores to write "Come Together" on the coffee cups that they serve Thursday and Friday.
He says that it is a way to "send our elected officials a respectful but potent message, urging them to come together to find a common ground."
It is the first time that Starbucks has asked employees to write messages on its cups. However, the employees are not required to do so.
