Oh noooooooooo way. That's so beneath them...they are BARISTAS....
You seem like an objective, reasonable person...

Starbucks isn't even elitist. Starbucks is about as everyman as McDonald's these days. The real pretentious types HATE Starbucks.

I'm not the type of person that thinks a degree means everything, but you obviously have some type of unresolved issues regarding people who are educated at a college.

I saw this going on at my local grocery store and was just flabbergasted. The inside Starbucks just opened and people were lined up buying iced coffee drinks and cakes with their food stamp cards. I work full-time and can't afford their coffee, but my tax dollars are being spent in this way, supposedly for people who are hungry and "in need". If you think I'm kidding, Google about it.
Why didn't YOU ask those supposedly needy SOBs why they're blowing their money on over priced garbage coffee?

Oh,.that's right...these evil corporations are somehow forcing these people these people to buy Starbucks, and if they had a choice, they would be buying Maxwell House instead, right? It can't possibly be thier OWN fault that they're abusing the system, right?

Starbucks (SBUX) is giving it the old college try…again.

The largest coffee retailer is expanding its agreement with Arizona State University to offer free college tuition to employees for four years instead of the previous two years.

The revised Starbucks College Achievement Plan-- which was launched last June-- will be available to all 140,000 company employees who work at least 20 hours a week as well as 10,000 young people who are not working or in school that the company plans to hire over the next three years.
