In retribution to President Donald Trump’s executive order issued this past Friday that contains a moratorium of people entering the country from several jihadist breeding grounds in the Middle East, Starbucks CEO, Howard E. Schultz, a hard core Progressive announced “plans to hire 10,000 refugees.”
Schultz in a statement on Starbucks website stated:
We are living in an unprecedented time, one in which we are witness to the conscience of our country, and the promise of the American Dream, being called into question. These uncertain times call for different measures and communication tools than we have used in the past. Kevin and I are going to accelerate our commitment to communicating with you more frequently, including leveraging new technology platforms moving forward. I am hearing the alarm you all are sounding that the civility and human rights we have all taken for granted for so long are under attack, and want to use a faster, more immediate form of communication to engage with you on matters that concern us all as partners.
Spoken like a true Progressive, Schultz was silent and did not take issue with Barack Obama crushing the path to the American Dream for millions of Americans or Obama’s 2011 ban of refugees. Nevertheless, unemployed Americans, i.e., young men and women, veterans need not apply.
Hiring Refugees: We have a long history of hiring young people looking for opportunities and a pathway to a new life around the world. This is why we are doubling down on this commitment by working with our equity market employees as well as joint venture and licensed market partners in a concerted effort to welcome and seek opportunities for those fleeing war, violence, persecution and discrimination. There are more than 65 million citizens of the world recognized as refugees by the United Nations, and we are developing plans to hire 10,000 of them over five years in the 75 countries around the world where Starbucks does business. And we will start this effort here in the U.S. by making the initial focus of our hiring efforts on those individuals who have served with U.S. troops as interpreters and support personnel in the various countries where our military has asked for such support.
Time for President Trump to eliminate the H1B visa programs especially since the companies screaming the loudest and ginning up the fear across the globe hire through H1B visa programs instead of unemployed Americans.
Moreover, when Starbucks is not hiring refugees, they will be hiring Dreamers through their “Opportunity Youth” fairs. Unemployed Black youth, need not apply.
Support for DACA: As I wrote to Senators Graham and Durbin this week, we are enthusiastically behind their work to support “Dreamers” across our country – including those young men and women who are part of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. There are nearly three quarters of a million hardworking people contributing to our communities and our economy because of this program. At Starbucks, we are proud to call them partners and to help them realize their own American Dream. We want them to feel welcome and included in our success, which is why we reimburse them for the biennial fee they must pay to stay in the program and why we have offered DACA-related services at our Opportunity Youth hiring fairs.

Schultz’s statement was not solely an attack on the president’s immigration and vetting of refugees, it is an all-out war on Trump’s policies and on Americans in general on behalf of George Soros and globalists everywhere. Case in point: the repeal and reformation OBAMACARE.
Our Healthcare Commitment to You: Finally, let me restate what we have recently communicated with you about the Affordable Care Act – our commitment remains that if you are benefits eligible, you will always have access to health insurance through Starbucks. Many of you have expressed concerns that recent government actions may jeopardize your ability to participate in the Affordable Care Act. If the recent Executive Order related to health care remains in place and the Affordable Care Act is repealed causing you to lose your healthcare coverage, you will always have the ability to return and can do so within 30 days of losing that coverage rather than having to wait for an open enrollment period. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Benefits Center at 877-728-9236.
Using one’s employees as a propaganda tool is not too low for this globalist.
