    We all know how this company operates......

    Cue corporate apologies and complete policy reversal to make BLM shirts mandatory in 3-2-1.......

    Good on them for driving politics out of the workplace.

    For what it's worth Starbucks HQ is located in Seattle... Maybe the unrest it's hitting little too close to home for comfort and the bottom line.

    Last place i worked/retired from, they didnt put up with ANY nonsense. I`ve seen GOOD workers get fired instantly for politics being mentioned in the workplace. It was NOT allowed. That chit needs to get checked at the door before walking in. You`re there to work! They are paying people a paycheck, they expected people to work, and not BS.

    If they don’t, they can go back to their HQ and ring that “smart decision” bell, like they always wanted to.

    Now they are trying to close the coop door. The chickens are coming home to roost.

    They helped still the wind when the match was trying to light the fuse. It's lit now.

    Yeah it's not good.

    Their beans in my own coffee maker can be good, or was in the past when my SIL worked there and gave us lots of free coffee.

    Shouldn't broadcast their business. You can't wear political stick were I work, nobodies business but us who work here. If I got on social media and made a stink about it I'd be fired.
