Anti-Gun Starbucks Now Plans to Staff Their Shops With THOUSANDS of Refugees

Howard Shultz, the CEO of Starbucks, said the coffee shop will hire 1ok refugees in 75 countries over the next 5 years.

The announcement comes just two days after President Donald Trump signed an executive order Friday suspending all refugee admissions from any country for 120 days, placing a 90-day moratorium on the entry of any citizen from seven Middle Eastern countries, and capping the number of refugees in 2017 at 50,000.

Schultz laid out the details of the employment initiative in a letter to employees, promising the company would do “everything possible,” to support the workers affected by the ban, Reuters reports. Starting in the U.S., Starbucks will begin the initiative by hiring people who worked with former U.S. troops as interpreters and support personnel.
