Black Rifle Coffee is a Utah based business vowing to hire US veterans first before employing refugees. This move by the Coffee business is in response to Starbucks goal to hire 10,000 refugees. Starbucks Coffee made the announcement after US President Donald Trump signed the executive order on Immigration Ban.
Black Rifle Coffee CEO, Evan Hafer said that hiring veterans is the right thing to do. US vets need that much aid to circulate in the American workforce. He further added that what Starbucks is showing is a mockery to the Conservatives, reported by the Washington Times
Starbucks Corporate Executive Officer Howard Schultz made his declaration in retaliation to the 90-day temporary Immigration Ban the US president put into law. The ban of refugees to the United States will include countries from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Sudan and Libya. Black Rifle Coffee showed its support for Trump by hiring Americans first in its thrust to make "America Great Again", reported by Fox News Insider.
Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky offered free housing for refugees and anyone caught up in the immigration ban mess. Sergey Brin, Google co-founder joined a protest rally in the San Francisco Airport in disapproval of the Immigration Ban. Black Rifle Coffee said that because some companies label themselves progressive for what they stand up for doesn't have to be for conservative businesses to sit down and do nothing.
The CEOs of TESLA, Apple, Facebook, and Microsoft followed suit in the immigration ban disapproval issues. Starbuck's Schultz stressed his point and objectives why he is doing the hiring of 10,000 Refugees for his business. Black Rifle Coffee has its own reasons as well, Reported by Forbes.
Black Rifle Coffee teamed up with Panda Express CEO Tom Davin, on the first 24 retail outlets. Another 600 outlets will soon join the list manned by newly hired vets of The Black Rifle Coffee and Panda Express.
