Today, Starbucks announced that it would hire 10,000 refugees over the next five years in a politically-charged response to President Donald Trump’s controversial temporary halting of refugees entering the United States from a select few countries (otherwise known as the “Muslim Ban”). The CEO of Starbucks thinks this is a great idea because he feels that the United States is wrongfully discriminating against these refugees temporarily, sometimes over race or religion. Meanwhile, he is announcing a plan to purposely discriminate against 380 million Americans who will not be considered for these 10,000 jobs due to their race or religion.
Guess you gotta fight fire with fire, huh? Way to go Starbucks. We know that our interpretation of your plan is being overdramatic, but no more so than the way you are overdramatizing the temporary halting of some people from some countries from entering the United States because of security concerns. Have a nice day.
P.S. Why not spend your time working on getting the names right on the cups instead of taking active political stands? Also, kudos to you for thinking that arbitrarily employing 10,000 refugees regardless of education, work history, or experience will somehow strike a blow in the millions upon millions of people suffering in war-torn countries across the globe.
