Starbucks strikes back at Trump by vowing to hire 10,000 refugees over 5 years

Announcing the hiring plans in a corporate message to employees, Howard Schultz, the coffee chain’s chief executive said:

“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 . . . If there is any lesson to be learned over the last year, it’s that your voice and your vote matter more than ever. We are all obligated to ensure our elected officials hear from us individually and collectively. Starbucks is doing its part; we need you to use the collective power of your voices to do the same while respecting the diverse viewpoints of the 90 million customers who visit our stores in more than 25,000 locations around the world.”
