    Starbucks will provide paid sick time to its employees nationwide and give its 150,000 hourly and salaried U.S. workers another wage hike in April, just three months after its regular January pay increase, the company is announcing Wednesday. “Everyone is getting a raise — the level they get depends on the region and the cost of living,” said spokesman Reggie Borges. Many U.S. companies have announced bonuses or wage increases since Congress last month reduced the corporate income tax to 21 percent from 35 percent. “For us the change in U.S. tax law has given us a chance to accelerate some...
  • Judge bars Starbucks from closing 77 failing Teavana stores

    An Indiana judge has taken an unusual step and temporarily barred Starbucks from closing 77 failing Teavana stores in Simon Property Group malls because the real estate giant was less able to handle the financial pain. Starbucks said in July it planned to shutter its 379-store Teavana operation but Simon rushed to court to block 77 stores in its malls from going dark claiming such a move by a high-profile tenant could spark other stores in its malls to close. Starbucks, after trying to turn around its stumbling tea chain, said last August it was pulling the plug...

    Since announcing in December that he would step down as Starbucks chief executive, there has been speculation that Howard Schultz is eyeing a run for president in 2020. A couple weeks back, I pegged him as the businessperson most likely to win the Democratic nomination. Well, Howard Schultz sure sounds like a candidate.
  • Pumpkin Spice Lattes fund 'white supremacy' in Trump White House, according to feminist group

    "Pumpkin spice just doesn't taste as good when you add a shot of racism," a feminist leader explained as the fall flavor began to pop up in coffee shops around the country. This is a shockingly weird claim, but it shouldn't be surprising. In an editorial published last month, we wrote about the Left's effort to broaden the boundaries of concepts such as white supremacy and racism in a way that impugns the conduct of well-meaning people. Now, a feminist nonprofit is running a campaign to convince festive imbibers of Pumpkin Spice Lattes they're unknowingly boosting the cause of white...

    Starbucks CEO, Howard Schultz continued his assault against the majority of Americans. Following the Charlottesville protests, Schultz said, “I know we’re better than this. The bigotry, hatred and senseless violence against people who are not white cannot stand.”   Howard Schultz is a disgrace. He recently came under fire for saying he was going to hire thousands of Muslim refugees over Americans/Veterans. He continues to side with the violent leftists by refusing to condemn Antifa, Black Lives Matter and Islamic terrorists. According to Schultz, only the white supremacists were violent, bigoted and hateful. Shocker.
  • Hanson: Silicon Valley Billionaires Are the New Robber Barons

    08/17/2017 10:08:50 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 26 replies
    Progressives used to pressure U.S. corporations to cut back on outsourcing and on the tactic of building their products abroad to take advantage of inexpensive foreign workers. During the 2012 election, President Obama attacked Mitt Romney as a potential illiberal outsourcer in chief for investing in companies that went overseas in search of cheap labor. Yet most of the computers and smartphones sold by Silicon Valley companies are still being built abroad to mostly silence from progressive watchdogs. In the case of the cobalt mining that is necessary for the production of lithium-ion batteries in electric cars, thousands of...

    Recent arrivals from Somalia and other countries in sub-Saharan Africa were among the refugees interviewed for possible jobs by 30 Starbucks managers at a hiring event in El Cajon, California on Tuesday as part of the companys commitment to hire 10,000 refugees over the next five years. The latent tuberculosis (TB) rate of 43 percent among refugees in San Diego County from sub-Saharan Africa is more than ten times greater than the latent TB rate of 4 percent found in the general population...

  • Starbucks Customer Fighting Off Masked Robber With Chair Caught On Tape

    Incredible new video out of Fresno was shot when a masked robber used a fake gun and a knife to threaten a Starbucks clerk. It happened on Thursday. Fifty-eight-year-old customer Cregg Jerri grabbed a chair, walked up behind the robber and smashed it over his head. The two started fighting, according to investigators. Jerri was stabbed in the neck during the struggle but managed to wrestle away the knife and stab the robber several times. It was incredibly heroic and the way most people would think that they would respond but may not have the courage to respond, said Chief...

    It seems that the coffee company Starbucks is forever finding itself embroiled in one storm in a coffee cup after another. Whether its telling its investors that if they dont support Gay Marriage then their money is unwelcome, or allowing their Saudi Arabia branches to ban women from buying coffee; this company is suffering from a delusion that it can enforce its political voice without consequence. The latest trouble is in Indonesia and Malaysia where Islamic groups (powerful ones, too), have called for mass boycotting of the coffee shops because of their stance on LGBTQ rights; these groups are also...

    A prominent Muslim leader has called for a boycott of international coffee brand Starbucks because its support for gay marriage is 'not in line' with Islamic law. Anwar Abbas, the leader of Muhammadiyah, a 30 million-strong group in Indonesia, said Starbucks' pro-gay stance threatened the 'religious and cultured' core of the Southeast Asian nation. 'If Starbucks only does business, then fine. But don't bring ideology here,' Abbas told Reuters on Saturday.

    Iced drinks from Starbucks and two other U.K. coffee chains contained "concerning" levels of fecal bacteria, according to a BBC investigation. [Snip] Tony Lewis, head of policy at the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, said that the levels of bacteria found in the drinks were "concerning." He said the types of bacteria identified are "the source of human disease," adding that "These should not be present at any level, never mind the significant numbers found."

    It's hard to match the refreshing taste of an iced coffee on a hot summer day but a new BBC investigation may make you think twice before you order a chilled drink. The BBC's consumer affairs "Watchdog" program found that samples of iced drinks from Starbucks and two other UK chains including Costa Coffee and Caffe Nero contained "varying levels of the bacteria." Along with the ice, researchers also studied the cleanliness of tables, trays, and high chairs at 30 of the coffee chain branches. Costa Coffee was the worst offender, with seven out of 10 samples "found to...

    CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46) - On a day when lawmakers from both sides of the aisle in Washington are asking Americans to unite, a loyal Starbucks customer says she was targeted for supporting Donald Trump. Starbucks said they are making sure this incident won't happen again. "I don't know what politics has to do with getting a cup of coffee," Kayla Hart said. Hart walked in to Starbucks on East Boulevard in Dilworth on Wednesday morning, wearing a Donald Trump t-shirt. Instead of being greeted with a smile, Kayla said the cashier laughed and her order was labeled with a...
