Starbucks is more than merely the personal nemesis of Jesus Christ. It's also an ally to US veterans.
The coffee corporation announced yesterday it would treat a child or spouse of each of its veteran or active military reservist employees to four years of tuition-free college, Forbes reports.
To be eligible, veteran employees must work 20 or more hours a week, as per the guidelines established in the original, ongoing initiative between the Arizona State University Online Degree Program and Starbucks providing four years of tuition-free higher education to all employees.
Although it's not clear whether or not the benefit will extend to more than one family member, the benefit is a sizable contribution, with over 5,500 veterans and military spouses ranking among Starbucks' employees.
Perhaps in light of these outstanding educational benefits, people can start forgiving Starbs for the utter basic-trocity that was the red cup fiasco of 2015.
