On Sunday, Starbucks announced that it’ll pay for thousands of its workers to attend courses at Arizona State University and get their bachelor’s degree. Unlike the dubious practices of some other fast-food juggernauts (we’re looking at you, McDonalds), Starbucks intends to educate its workforce instead of exploiting their lack of education, and 135,000 Starbucks workers are already eligible.
“There’s no doubt the inequality within the country has created a situation where many, many Americans are being left behind. The question I think for all of us is, ‘Should we accept that, or should we try to do something about it?”, asked Starbucks CEO Howard Shultz.
The Starbucks College Plan provides full reimbursement for juniors and seniors, and partial scholarships and need-based financial aid for freshmen and sophomores. There will be no obligation to continue working for Starbucks after graduation.
Arizona State University, founded in 1885 and located in Tempe, Arizona, is the largest public university in the United States by enrollment and one of the largest campuses in the country. Courses are valued at $10,000 a year.
