Mayor Murray: ‘I challenge other employers to follow Starbucks’ lead in investing in their workforce’

Mayor Murray made the following statement today regarding Starbucks’ new College Achievement Plan:

“I want to applaud Howard Schultz and Starbucks for their corporate leadership in addressing one of the greatest issues facing this generation and recognizing that America must close the college affordability gap in order to close the income inequality gap. This partnership with Arizona State University will put student workers on track for success, giving them the tools they need to succeed without the debt.

I challenge other employers to follow Starbucks’ lead in investing in their workforce and giving every employee the chance to earn a college degree”
