Starbucks Makes Good on 'Create Jobs for USA' Promise
Starbucks, which laid off 39,000 employees over the two years ending last fall, is about to start hiring again. By year’s end, Starbucks will have a new barista battalion, some 3,500 strong, pulling on their aprons and dealing with steam burns. Next year will see 200 new Starbucks added to the nearly 11,000 existing ones. Those will need to be staffed up while 1,700 other Starbucks go through job-creation remodeling.
