Starbucks says it will hire 10,000 refugees over the next five years, a response to President Donald Trump's indefinite suspension of Syrian refugees and temporary travel bans that apply to six other Muslim-majority nations.
In his statement, he speaks of hiring refugees not only in America but in many of his stores worldwide. Let’s get that clear.
One smart move could have been to address the thousands of homeless vets in America and offer them jobs or for that fact, the hundreds of thousands of unemployed current citizens in all the countries that has starbucks coffee shops. Starbucks “says” they support veterans, why, to get your donations. https://www.starbucks.com/responsibility/community/veterans
Sure, starbucks has made the claim that they would hire vets (back in 2014) but didn't even come close to hireing the true numbers of vets it said it would. "Schultz (Starbucks CEO) has long been vocal about his political beliefs. He endorsed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for president in September and reportedly would have been Clinton's pick for secretary of labor had she won the election".
But no, this was a direct retaliation attack on President Trumps recent “travel ban” and yet another Starbucks cry baby move that screams “Anti American”.
I should tell you, starbucks coffee has really loss my interest about 10 years ago. They never really were the “holy grail” of coffee for me anyway. I know a couple of Marine Gunnery Sergeants that can make a wicked cup of joe and guess what? It doesn’t cost freaking $5.
This from a recently deployed Marine:
Recently Marines in Iraq wrote to Starbucks because they wanted to
let them know how much they liked their coffees and to request that they
send some of it to the troops there.
Starbucks replied, telling the Marines
thank you for their support of their business, but that Starbucks does not support the war, nor anyone in it, and that they would not send the troops their brand of coffee.

The Starbucks corporation is helbound on “coffee” world domination. When a starbucks opens up near a “local” coffee shop, they quickly put them out of business because of their buying power. They also are a fad that mainly cry baby Hollywood actors go to get their coffee. Do you?
Starbucks Corporation is an American coffee company and coffeehouse chain. Starbucks was founded in Seattle, Washington in 1971. As of November 2016, it operates 23,768 locations worldwide, including 13,107 in the United States, 2,204 in China, 1,418 in Canada, 1,160 in Japan and 872 in South Korea.
I guess I’m just tired of this monster “coffee” corporation who is aiming for a monopoly on coffee worldwide, is big enough to dabble in politics, continue to make anti-American moves and cries when it doesn’t get its way. BatDad agrees!
If you happen to check it out, since this cry baby coffee corporation made the statement of hiring refugees, their stock has continued to sink as of Jan 31, 2017. Shocker..... guess they didn't figure on the true Americans deciding to go elsewhere.
Instead of going to buy yourself an overpriced, dorked up cup of coffee at starbucks filled with “I don’t get my way tears” why not try some of these veteran coffee companies?
There will be some out there that may disagree with me and say “are you kidding me, starbucks is saving the world” and I would tell you are brainwashed, you probably don't drink enough water and need to get your coffee somewhere else. Try it, I bet it doesn’t cost you $5 and tastes better. But that’s just One Marines View….#BoycottStarbucks
