Starbucks boss Howard Schultz has said his company would employ 10,000 refugees over next five years. Mr Schultz is CEO of international coffee shop chain. He is very unhappy with President Donald Trump's new ban on citizens of seven Middle Eastern and North African countries. Schultz said his promise was, " concerted effort to welcome and seek opportunities for those fleeing war, violence, persecution and discrimination". He added: "There are more than 65 million citizens of world recognized as refugees by United Nations, and we are developing plans to hire 10,000 of them over five years in 75 countries around world where Starbucks does business."
Many people are angry at Mr Schultz's plans. Trump supporters have asked people to boycott Starbucks coffee shops. They say that Mr Schultz should be doing more to help 40,000 unemployed military veterans in USA instead of refugees. Starbucks said it has already hired 8,800 of 10,000 veterans it promised to hire in 2013 by 2018. Trump supporters have also asked consumers to quit doing business with other companies who are critical of President, like Macy’s and Amazon. On opposite side, opponents of Mr. Trump have started hashtag #GrabYourWallet. This encourages consumers to avoid doing business with companies that have supported Mr Trump or have business links to him.
