Dumb Response? Starbucks Vows to Hire 10,000 Refugees


Starbucks has pledged to hire 10,000 refugees in response to President Donald Trump’s astute immigrant ban. CEO

Howard Schultz said in a letter to employees Sunday the company would hire refugees from 75 different countries over a five-year period. “We are living in an unprecedented time, one in which we are witness to the conscience of our country, and the promise of the American Dream, being called into question. These uncertain times call for different measures and communication tools than we have used in the past,” Schultz said in the letter. The company plans to give priority to “those individuals who have served with U.S. troops as interpreters and support personnel.” Read more.



  1. So how will he figure out their tax status? How much does Schultz take off from their weekly paycheck? He will be paying them ON the books, right?
    Schultz has been promoting toeivah behavior for many years. Please take a moment and sign the petition at dumpstarbucks.com.

  2. If Starbucks doesn’t want employees of American descent let them take their business to Yemen, Oman, Iran etc. Who needs them here! They could then even mix some hashish and oil into the mixture for added flavoring!
    #Boycott Starbucks!

  3. this is not a ploy because starbucks is so welcoming. it is a ploy for starbucks to make more money. they will pay these ‘refugees’ much less than they would have to pay american employees

  4. What a stupid thing to do.

    He’s basically saying I’ll pay these refugees 5 bucks an hour so that he gets name recognition in Iran.

  5. It is a means to an Ends
    Howard Schultz was once a contender for presidential nomination, possibly he still wants to be..

  6. Then you have to ask does any one know how to say coffee and cream in Arabic, or any other language other than English. Will they give a booklet that tells you how to say your order in the language the sales person is helping you at that time??? I am sure they will not be speaking English for quite a while so one has to know how to order the coffee.

  7. So now Starbucks coffee won’t be just overpriced, it will also carry exotic intestinal worms. Another reason to boycott Starbucks.
