How much money do you think Starbucks loses closing all it's stores in the U.S. for one afternoon? I have no clue, but today Starbucks announced that they will be closing for the afternoon of May 29th, so their employees could undergo racial-bias training. If your curious how many stores that is......that would be 8,000 stores!
This comes a week after two black men were arrested at a store in Philadelphia for trespassing while they were doing nothing but waiting for a friend. Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson said, that he would meet with the men who were arrested to personally apologize to them.
The Starbucks manager who was involved in the arrest is no longer on the job.
