Starbucks is having to do some serious back-peddling after the company started to plummet in popularity for announcing months ago that it would hire foreign refugees over Americans.
But now, the coffee chain is set to hire US veterans!
Starbucks Corp. plans to hire more U.S. military veterans and their spouses after facing backlash over its promise to hire refugees.
Presiding over his last annual shareholders meeting as chief executive on Wednesday, Howard Schultz said Starbucks will hire 15,000 veterans and their spouses by 2025, on top of more than 10,000 hired since a pledge he made four years ago.
Now this is how a company should be hiring in President Donald Trump’s America!
