    Our commitment extends beyond hiring. We’re offering expanded benefits, including education opportunities. We have also opened over 50 Starbucks Military Family Stores across the U.S., and plan to dedicate 80 more by 2022. These are places where veterans and military families can work, connect and find transition guidance and information.

    The cops that were Vets should contact Howard Schultz. As he is all about taking care of Vets.
    I don't believe Howard Schultz runs Starbucks any more.

    Actually, the "establishment" issued an apology to the officers and said it was not their policy.


    Just a lone snowflake, it seems.

    They also apologized for the two men that were kicked out for trespassing a while ago, but that didn’t stop the hard right from $#@!ing about the arresting cops and Starbucks doing nothing wrong and they were well within their rights to kick them out.

    I see how things and positions change....it would just be nice if it wasn’t because they look different....

    It appears Starbucks is consistent in their response to ill-treated customers.

    All is good.
