Yesterday, Starbucks CEO, Howard Schulz, made an announcement that Starbucks plans to hire 10,000 Muslim refugees. With the U.S. employement climate being a top concern in our country and Military veterans being at almost 6% in many cases, Schulz caused a huge amount of blowback on Twitter and Facebook. Infact, the hashtag, #boycottstarbucks is trending in the top spot on Twitter.
America, where we care more about illegal immigrants and refugees than our homeless Vets ???????????????? #boycottstarbucks #faketears #reasonstoprotest pic.twitter.com/99P4u1fr94

But the real impact on Starbucks has been felt at the investor level. Upon hearing the announcement to refuse jobs for Americans, many investors pulled out of the company, causing the stock to dump. If you are a Starbucks shareholder, you might consider getting out now.
Remember, it wasn’t but just over a week ago that Hillary supporters, violently rioting against Trump, destroyed a D.C. Starbucks. Schulz might want to check his liberal ego, it might be getting his company in trouble.
