Starbucks is usually thought of as one of the most liberal companies in America. After all, I’m sure you’ve read on Facebook about more than one of your friends boycotting them about their stance on telling customers “Merry Christmas.”
However, the Starbucks Corporation is showing at least a little decency in that it has scrapped its COVID vaccine-or-test requirement for their employees after the Supreme Court struck down Biden’s vaccine mandate.
Speaking to Reuters, Starbucks CEO John Culver insisted that “We respect the court’s ruling and will comply.”
The announcement came after another huge company, General Electric, said it would also suspend enforcement of Biden’s rules after the Supreme Court’s decision.
Biden didn’t seem to be happy with either decision. “The court has ruled that my administration cannot use the authority granted to it by Congress to require this measure,” he said. “But that does not stop me from using my voice as president to advocate for employers to do the right thing to protect Americans’ health and economy.”
