Starbucks CEO Schultz Will Hire 10,000 Refugees In Response To Trump's Executive Order

From McClatchey:
Howard Schultz, the coffee retailer's chairman and CEO, said in a letter to employees Sunday that the hiring would apply to stores worldwide and the effort would start in the United States where the focus would be on hiring immigrants "who have served with U.S. troops as interpreters and support personnel." 
Schultz, a supporter of Hillary Clinton during the presidential run, took aim at other parts of a Trump agenda focused on immigration, repealing former President Barack Obama's health care law and restructuring trade with Mexico. The letter said that Starbucks would help support coffee growers in Mexico, provide health insurance to eligible workers if the health care law is repealed and back an Obama-era immigration program that allows young immigrants who were brought to the country as children to apply for a two-year reprieve from deportation and a work permit.

What about hiring the children of American citizens who are desperately seeking a job for themselves?

Starbucks is placing new immigrants at the front of the line in front of children of generational Americans and young adults who are unemployed....?

But at the end of the day, hiring should be based on merit, not categories based on political affinity.

Yet another reason for me to avoid Starbucks. I don't like Starbucks coffee in the first place.
