Jerry Mander – Another Reason to Boycott Starbucks

Jerry Mander

Starbucks’ sanctimonious leftist chairman Howard Schultz has stepped in it again by announcing that Starbucks would hire 10,000 “refugees” in the wake of President Trump’s temporary ban on accepting “immigrants” from seven Islamic hotspots. This isn’t the first time Schultz has offended a wide swath of Americans by injecting his leftist politics into his stores. It seems he gives us fresh reason at least once a year to boycott Starbucks. “Jerry” urges you also to boycott other Starbucks operations such as Seattle’s Best Coffee, Teavana and Tazo tea. Schultz is another hypocritical leftist promoting anti-capitalist causes while profiting handsomely off of the capitalist system.

Starbucks Responds to Criticism Over Announcement of Hiring 10,000 Refugees

Article at Reuters

Starbucks Corp, facing backlash from some customers over its plans to hire refugees, said it would speed up its previously stated goal of hiring 10,000 veterans and military spouses by 2018.

Chief Executive Howard Schultz announced on Sunday the company’s plans to hire 10,000 refugees over the next five years, two days after U.S. President Donald Trump’s executive order put a four-month hold on allowing refugees into the United States and temporarily barred travelers from Syria and six other Muslim-majority countries.

It was one of the strongest commitments from a CEO of a major U.S. company against Trump’s order, after several other corporate bosses have stayed silent on Trump’s immigration curbs though the president is likely to face questions when he meets some of them on Friday.

As part of the refugee hiring plan, Schultz said the Starbucks would initially focus on hiring those who have served with U.S. troops as interpreters and support personnel abroad.

The world’s largest coffee chain soon after faced backlash on social media with several people using #BoycottStarbucks to urge customers to stay away from its stores. Some users also posted screenshots of them deleting the company’s app on their phones.

However, users including actor Jessica Chastain, tweeted in support of the company after it announced its refugee hiring plans.

Starbucks, along with former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, had announced plans in 2013 to hire 10,000 veterans and military spouses over the next five years.

The world’s largest coffee chain said on Thursday it had already hired over 8,800 veterans and spouses so far.

The company said it would reach its veteran hiring target earlier than expected and would continue hiring more.

  1. I like the companies response to the boycott, Oh but we also promised to hire Vets! I cannot believe anyone would use these names (titles) in the same sentence in comparison.

    WE have a Starbucks gift card. My wife says we won’t use it it. Then she realized Starbucks already has the money, we are not giving it to them, so we will go use it on ground coffee.

    • If it’s not too much, you could give it to a homeless person. They could use a cup of coffee and maybe a danish.
