(CNN) - We're just days away from going over the so-called Fiscal Cliff. That's the combination of tax hikes and steep spending cuts set to go into effect next week.
Now, coffee giant Starbucks has a message for policymakers who have been unable to reach a deal so far.
Check it out. Employees at some Washington-area stores are writing "Come Together" on coffee cups.
The move comes after the company's CEO Howard Schultz asked workers at its 120 D.C. area stores to write this when serving customers today and tomorrow.
Employees are not required to participate if it makes them "uncomfortable."
Schultz says he hopes the message will convince Democrats and Republicans to find common ground.
