Starbucks Is Paying Their Employees For The Next 30 Days Whether They Work or Not
By bigreid on March 24, 2020
This past weekend Starbucks announced that they have temporarily closed their in-store locations for the next two weeks due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
Although certain locations are still available for Drive-Thru services.
Starting today, we have temporarily closed our US and Canada in-store cafes, but select grocery and Drive Thru locations remain open. Starbucks Delivers on Uber Eats is also available in select markets. 💚

Starbucks’s CEO Kevin Johnson recently revealed that Starbucks will be paying all of their employees for the next 30 days whether they work or not.
“It is the responsibility of every business to care for its employees during this time of uncertainty, shared sacrifice, and common cause.” You can read Kevin Johnson’s full news letter here.
I hope to see many business leaders across this country doing all they can to retain jobs, pay employees, continue benefits, and demonstrate compassion as they make critical decisions. Not every decision is a financial one. https://t.co/bdedmMECXj pic.twitter.com/1EE9gTlgpn
