Then a truly patriot company, Black Rifle Coffee, did what a true American company would do, it said it was hiring 10,000 veterans! Now that’s what I’m talking about!
It looks like all the public backlash really hurt Starbucks because they are now coming back to Americans with their tail between their legs, now saying they will hire 25,000 veterans.
Too little, too late Starbucks! That’s the biggest load of crap I’ve heard in a long time!
The boycott continues! Beat it Howard Schultz, you’re all washed up!
Here’s more, from Fox News Insider:
Starbucks announced a new plan of hiring 25,000 veterans and military spouses by 2025.
In its announcement Wednesday, the coffee chain highlighted that it has already reached its goal – set in 2013 – of hiring 10,000 veterans and military spouses within five years.
Starbucks has now expanded its total commitment by 15,000.
“The numbers don’t tell the story. The story is the unbelievable heart, conscience, integrity, leadership skills of the people that we have been fortunate enough to bring into our company,” said Howard Schultz, Starbucks CEO and chairman.
The company has reaffirmed a separate commitment to hire thousands of refugees, which was announced after President Donald Trump’s original executive order banning travel from seven Muslim-majority nations.

The refugee plan, seen by critics as political, prompted calls for the company to instead focus on hiring veterans.
