Starbucks Announces Intent to Violate Civil Rights Act | The Unveiled Feminist
Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 10, 2017
Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz announced that in response to President Trump’s “refugee ban,” the chain store would hire “10,000 refugees” in its stores worldwide. Depending on how many “refugee” hires would result from this “vow”, it seems scarcely possible without violating the Civil Rights Act, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of “race, religion, sex, color, or national origin.” Extensive hiring in the US would necessitate discrimination against those born here.
Nice catch! I never thought about this violating the civil Rights act. No worries about Starbucks stores being set on fire. Some are more equal than others.
