Starbucks Pledges To Hire 10,000 REFUGEES, Instead Of American Veterans And Citizens

Chairman and CEO Howard Schultz of Starbucks has announced that they will favor 10,000 refugees over the citizens of the countries where they make their money.

In that case, illegals are not eligible for Obamacare, so everytime they hire an illegal they save somewhere between $3000 and $5000 per year.  It’s not as big as the Obamacare advantage illegals got from Obama. Additionally, since those employees don’t count against the 50 employee cut off point, companies can avoid paying anything into Obamacare if they hire enough illegals.

From KJRH:

And Schultz said the company is “ready to help and support our Mexican customers, partners and their families” should any proposed trade sanctions, immigration restrictions and taxes affect their businesses.

“We are in business to inspire and nurture the human spirit, one person, one cup and one neighborhood at a time,” Schultz wrote. “That will not change. You have my word on that.”

Schultz is the latest business executive to weigh in on the travel ban. Earlier Sunday, General Electric CEO Jeff Immelt wrote to employees that he shared their “concern” over the order, and added that GE has many employees from the countries named in the ban.

I don’t know why anyone buys their coffee anyway.  It’s overpriced and is beaten by McDonald’s coffee in every blind taste test for the past 6 or 7 years.  Even Consumer Reports found that Starbuck’s coffee is inferior to McDonald’s.


Starbucks may be the world’s largest coffee shop chain in the world, but what they serve isn’t as good as what McDonald’s brews, Consumer Reports says.”

McDonalds’s also beat Burger King and Dunkin’ Donuts.

“In the March issue, the magazine called the fast food giant’s Premium Roast “cheapest and best….” Consumer Reports sent “trained testers” to two of each restaurant’s locations, where they drank coffee with no cream or sugar.

They characterized McDonald’s coffee as “decent and moderately strong. Although it lacked the subtle top notes needed to make it rise and shine, it had no flaws,” and complained that Starbucks was “strong, but burnt and bitter enough to make your eyes water instead of open.”
