Below is an excerpt of just one of many articles sharing how Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz lead the corporate protest against Donald Trump’s executive order to ban refugees.
Starbucks Corp Chief Executive Officer Howard Schultz said on Sunday that the company planned to hire 10,000 refugees over five years in 75 countries, two days after U.S. President Donald Trump’s executive order banning refugees from certain countries.
The hiring efforts announced on Sunday would start in the United States by initially focusing on individuals who have served with U.S. troops as interpreters and support personnel in the various countries where the military has asked for such support, Schultz said.
In a memo sent to employees, Schultz wrote,
We are in business to inspire and nurture the human spirit, one person, one cup and one neighborhood at a time. That will not change. You have my word on that.
