Starbucks plan to hire 10,000 refugees during the next 5 years, according to the CEO of the coffee chain Howard Schultz. The migrants will receive a job during the next five years and all the cafes around the world will open its doors to refugees.
Last week the US President Donald Trump issued an act for ban of refugees in the US for 120 days and prohibits citizens from seven countries, mainly Muslim countries, to enter the country for 90 days. However, the Directive has been criticized by US allies Canada and Germany.
Starbucks is in direct contact with the employees affected by the ban on immigration and will do everything possible to support and help during this confusing period, said the CEO of the coffee chain Howard Schultz in a statement to employees posted on the company website.
The Executive Director added that strongly supports the program “Dreamers”, designed to help immigrants who arrive in the United States.
According to him, the company will provide “support and assistance to Mexican customers, partners and their families”, as proposed trade sanctions, immigration restrictions and fees can have a serious impact on their business and their trust of Americans.
Against this background, Schultz said the company will continue to invest in Mexico, despite of the offensive policy of Donald Trump against corporations, which head investments outside USA.
