Starbucks CEO: We’ll Pay All Workers For Next 30 Days

CBS News reports:

As the coronavirus pandemic intensifies across the U.S., many restaurants and cafes have switched to drive-thru, delivery and take-out only systems — but still, some workers feel uncomfortable putting their health at risk to come to work. This week, Starbucks said it would pay all of its employees for the next month, even if they choose to stay home.

As unemployment claims surge, Starbucks CEO and President Kevin Johnson announced this week his commitment to pay all workers in the U.S. and Canada for the next 30 days, regardless of whether they come into work or the stores they work at temporarily close.
