Starbucks will provide a free online college education to thousands of its workers, without requiring that they remain with the company, through an unusual arrangement with Arizona State University, the company and the university will announce on Monday.
The program is open to any of the company’s 135,000 United States employees, provided they work at least 20 hours a week and have the grades and test scores to gain admission to Arizona State. For a barista with at least two years of college credit, the company will pay full tuition; for those with fewer credits it will pay part of the cost, but even for many of them, courses will be free, with government and university aid.
“Starbucks is going where no other major corporation has gone,” said Jamie P. Merisotis, president and chief executive of the Lumina Foundation, a group focused on education. “For many of these Starbucks employees, an online university education is the only reasonable way they’re going to get a bachelor’s degree.”
Starbucks is, in effect, inviting its workers, from the day they join the company, to study whatever they like, and then leave whenever they like — knowing that many of them, degrees in hand, will leave for better-paying jobs.

Y’ALL NIGGAS HIRING?

UH LET ME APPLY TO STARBUCKS REAL QUICK HOLD ON

OKAY WAIT THOUGH I NEED TO GET IN ON THIS

WHAT THE FUCK

What’s the scoop
scum-manifesta????

seemingly pretty legit! starbucks was getting some criticism based on misunderstandings but those have been cleared up pretty well. the only problem is that starbz’ previous policy was tuition reimbursement for the college of your choice. it also isn’t great for low-income partners who might not have internet access. that said, as someone who hasn’t been able to afford any school at ALL (i was living on $150/week in unemployment for a long time, barely making rent, spending my days eating spaghetti) this is a really exciting opportunity for me to get an education. it’s not a perfect program but for people like me it’s a really big deal. (also - let’s hang out next week? i get paid on friday!)
