TRENDING TOPICS (w/ @ItsMalloryHagan)—
#BoycottStarbucks is trending today. Starbucks CEO,Howard Schultz, announced that his company would commit to hiring 10,000 refugees at Starbucks locations around the globe, including in the us, and he criticized President Trump’s immigration ban.
This coming at a time when #DeleteUber is also a topic of discussion. This week, the NYC Taxi Workers Alliance went on an hour-long strike at John F. Kennedy Airport, and Uber drivers continued to pick up airport goers, striking a chord with those who were standing in solidarity with travelers impacted by President Trump’s Executive Order. Many responded by deleting the popular ride-share app.
So the big question this morning is: Do you think boycotting a company works?
