So after Starbucks announced the plan to hire 10,000 refugees globally on Sunday, many people were supportive but others were outraged. Here's a few tweets that flew all over the web which resulted in the hashtag #boycottstarbucks Starbucks is also being boycotted by MEXICO as we mentioned yesterday as a part of the WALL TAX boycott of American products/companies by Mexican consumers to protest the tax. Maybe its time to sell that Starbucks stock? or buy some more?
There were alot of bigoted hate remarks about who is making the morning coffee, but also some undeniable points made about hiring vets, students and the underemployed people here in the US that are still struggling. HOWEVER in the statement, they said they would hire vets first. (see video below). Not that a Starbucks gig is going to save their lives, but we get the point.
And of course, these ppl saying that "someone doesn't belong here" is always going to incite an argument with no clear winner. Just remember, under that type of thinking, none of us originally "belonged" here unless you're a NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN.
