Starbucks isn’t just bitter, horrible tasting coffee. It’s also Howard Schultz headquarters to hire refugees over American veterans. Schultz is now toast, and will step down as CEO on April 2nd, after his plan to hire 10,000 backfired in his face.
|Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz to step down after pro-refugee flop|
Trump supporters have called for a boycott of the chain since January 29, when Schultz vowed to hire 10,000 refugees over five years.
In the announcement that he was stepping down, Schultz said he ‘will shift his focus to innovation, design and development of Starbucks Reserve® Roasteries around the world, expansion of the Starbucks Reserve® retail store format and the company’s social impact initiatives’ and ‘focus on Starbucks next wave of retail innovation.’
Schultz has always been vocal about the need for greater sensitivity in balancing profit margins while advancing socio-economic conscientiousness.
He was also a public Clinton supporter and prominent democrat, and even considered as a running mate for the Democratic nominee at one point.
Don’t matter if it’s Howard Schultz or Kevin Johnson leading the company. The coffee still sucks and is way overpriced.
