Philz Coffee To Lay Off 180 Employees Due To COVID-19

The lost jobs come on the heels of weeks of turmoil for the Bay Area-based coffee chain, with more than 100 employees organizing to protest Philz’ handling of worker safety during the pandemic and skewering its reaction to the Black Lives Matter movement. Staff posted anti-Philz leaflets across downtown San Francisco and circulated that messaging on social media.
