Starbucks CAVES, Changes Dress Code Policies for BLM
Oh come on now, you're not surprised Starbucks folded like a lawn chair being jumped on by Tess Holliday. You were surprised they first prohibited any BLM support from employees. But after a little heat from the news they'd not be taking a stand with pins or T-shirts, the coffee giant has sprinted backwards so fast, there's physical risk to their shins. In addition to allowing its employees to wear pro Black Lives Matters T-shirts and pins, the company is now having special shirts MADE.
Starbucks is tweaking its dress code to allow Black Lives Matter T-shirts and pins after complaints that it prohibited employees from wearing the items.
The company, which has publicly supported the movement following the death of George Floyd, is partnering with the Starbucks Black Partner Network and Black Starbucks leaders to make 250,000 shirts available to its company-operated partners in North America to affirm its support, officials told FOX Business on Friday.
I'd like to remind people that Starbucks used to sell coffee. Not good coffee, mind you. Coffee that needs lots of cream, sugar, pumps of sweetened syrups, and a splash of social justice. Now it seems like Starbucks just sells social justice with a splash of coffee. They've been spiraling down this road for a while, and they've finally arrived. Not sure it was the rebrand they were aiming for, but they they are. A venti of social justice, extra hot, lots of soy.
From the sounds of the new statement, plenty of employees, as in people who are paid by Starbucks, led the march to have the company's dress code changed. Think about it for a second.
"We've heard you want to show your support, so just be you," the company said. "We are so proud of your passionate support of our common humanity."
How nice for a company to be completely directed by the baristas and store employees.
THIS IS FINE
I always used Starbucks as a second work location. I've done the work from home thing long before it was cool. Sometimes you just want to get out of the house, wear real clothes, and see people. It was that simple. But after three months of not going to the Buckstars due to the stupid shutdown, I had already lost any interest in returning. Just human nature, you learn to live without something. This latest move is just icky. It shows no spine. I have to wonder how Starbucks will handle their business going forward. They've long been in the social justice game, as already stated. But not after a three month shutdown of people learning to live without their sugar drinks. I can't be the only person arriving at the same conclusion in thinking that maybe this time, Starbucks could be in real trouble.
