Starbucks CEO: We're Hiring 10,000 Refugees

Starbucks is about to be hiring.  CEO Howard Schultz has announced a plan to hire10,000 refugees in the wake of President Trump's temporary ban on allowing citizens of certain nations into the U.S.  

Schultz unveiled the plan in a company-wide letter.  He wrote, in part, "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." 

He went on to detail his goal of hiring 10,000 refugees over the next five years in 75 different countries where Starbucks is located.
