Starbucks plans to hire 1,000 refugees in Canada

Lucky them.

  • Clink9

    Thanks for the warning.

    • It’s my job;)

        I’m busy this week.
        But, note to self:
        See if Starbucks is listed on the TSX and read up on short selling stock.

    Boycott Starbucks – it’s hurt them in America, let’s do the same in Canada. They need to understand that their stupid progressive posturing is not welcome, and will hurt them in the only place they care about – their pocketbooks.

    • It’s working in the states.

      • David Murrell

        I’m certainly not going to buy Starbucks products. But we need effective conservative goups to promote boycotts. So far we do not have much in the way of organizational strength.

        • Alain

          I agree since to date it has just been individuals like myself which never produces the same results.

    • Etobicoke_Gladiator

      One word: BOYCOTT.

      I live right beside a Starbucks but also to an independently owned coffee shop, and will now only go to the latter. As for Starbucks more generally, I will boycott them all.

      • Clausewitz

        Shitty coffee and an equally shitty attitude means I never buy anything from Starbucks.

        • Editor

          It should get better, the future refugee employees are know for their sunny disposition, stellar customer service and knowledge of and respect for Canadian food industry health and cleanliness standards.

    • Bataviawillem

      I wish I could, but I never was in one.

    • WalterBannon

      It won’t work in Canada, Canada is full of quislings

    • canminuteman

      I’d love to boycott Starbucks, but I have’t been to one in twenty years.

    • Alain

      Been doing that for a long time already.

    • mauser 98

      have been for 3 years
      tranny unisex washrooms are revolting

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        If you’re a guy then you are just seeing what women’s washrooms look like.
        I was a janitor for a few years and I had to clean them.
        That is where I found out that the coolest thing about Bon-Ami foaming bathroom cleaner is that you can light it on fire after you spray it in the sink.
        The propellant is Lisa LaFlammable.

        • mauser 98

          !!??…wow will try it
          perhaps a flammable propellant in it like propane
          WD40 has propane in it
          a squirt of WD40 into an air rifle can make ii ‘diesel’

  • Ron MacDonald

    It’s time to encourage people to Boycott Starbucks.

    • KillerMarmot

      I’m years ahead of you. Call me prescient.

      Or just call me unwilling to stand in line to pay bloated prices for a product I don’t much care for.

  • New Centurion

    A win/win for “Starbucks”. Another cheap and disposable labour pool that they can exploit and under pay AND they can spin it into “good news” anti-Trump story, that’ll appeal to their uppity yoga pants clad soccer Moms and skinny jean wearing hipster customers. The boys in marketing should get a raise for this one.

  • Aaron Martin

    You guys have it all wrong on this one: Good on starbucks for hiring 1000 of them since 24,000 of them are unemployed and on social assistance. better starbucks pays them then we do with our taxes!

    • Etobicoke_Gladiator

      Wrong, buddy. This encourages a steady stream of migrants who will expect jobs a.s.a.p. when illegally entering Canada. The best solution, of course, is for the federal government to aggressively guard our borders and deport illegal aliens in the first place!

    • WalterBannon

      They need to be deported, not hired

      unemployed graduates of our universities’ useless social just programs, which our tax dollars paid a lot to “educate”, need those jobs so they can pay us back their student loans

    • Tooth&Claw

      LOL, you are an optimist. How much taxes do you think will offset the benefits they’re getting? Minimum wage isn’t taxed much.

  • ismiselemeas

    Damn, their ham and cheese sandwich always hit the spot.

  • reidjr

    There is a Starbucks right across from Parliament Hill that’s very popular with mps/senators I say we stock it full of refugees.

    • WalterBannon

      with suicide vests…

  • Observer

    Maybe it is time to use the lefty tactics and come up with a boycott poster that anybody can print out and glue up on a pole outside of the local Starbucks?

    • Yo Mama

      That would certainly get the attention of management and then head office!

      Good idea!

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    Great…now some jooo-hater will be spitting in my coffee when I come in wearing my MAGA hat…

    • It’s why I stay away from GTA Tim’s

    • El Martyachi

      “Raymond’s Backwoods Coffee” has a nice ring to it. Ya’d have a loyal if sparse customer base.

  • ontario john

    So will Starbucks be putting up “No Jews Allowed” signs in their windows?

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    Where else will I get my calorie bloated, over-roasted (burnt) and over-priced coffee while social signaling my willingness to be part of any hip and happening social phenomena, no matter how contrived?
    How, man!?
    I felt like I was selling out when I bought a Keurig coffee maker.
    The only way I set foot inside a Starbucks is if I’m using a gift card someone sent me as a gift.
    God I loath Starbucks.

    • Miss Trixie

      Me too. Part of a “field” assignment while in UVic last year, we had build a business case using Starbucks or Timmy’s and the prof assigned which company to each group. It was Starbucks for my group and all the brain-dead snowflakes with their skulls-full-of-mush were very excited. I absolutely DETEST Starbucks and when I ordered my “coffee”, I gave my name as “Mrs. Trump” to scribble on the cup.

      That was fun!

  • Sid Falco

    Virtue-signalling bs. It’s obvious in any Starbucks that the employees are young students or recent graduates – why should they lose their jobs for some liar.

  • CodexCoder

    I have no problem with Starbucks hiring whomever they want to hire. But this “Me, too” or “I am just as virtuous as X” trumpet blowing attitude reminds me of what Christ said about Pharisees conducting their alms in the streets, praying on street corners and believing that enhanced their virtue. His comment was “Surely, they have their reward” (Hint: fickle public recognition was all the reward they were ever going to see).

    The virtuous person does nothing for self glorification, but in humility acts quietly and privately as charity is best expressed one on one with no fanfare.When a virtuous person is eulogized, often other people say “Wow, I never knew that”. This is a lesson I learned from my father, a world class research scientist who has directly affected everyone who grows or uses grain and very few people know who he was or what his contribution was.

  • Don’t go to Starbucks. Don’t care.

  • ghost of benghazi

    This has been the goal all around, bomb the crap out a bunch of countries and there you have it sports fans instant slaves. There are hard done by people all over the world but they only want them from Syria. I refuse however to start drinking Starbucks crappy coffee so I can boycott it.

  • El Martyachi

    Why must this always be left to me? WHY WHY WHY
