Capitalism At Work & Play

Any corporate entity that calls its wage-slaves "associates", "partners" or any other such euphemisms is obviously fucking them over, but good, & now the chief bullshit-peddler at Starbucks has discovered an entirely new group he can fuck: Refugees. (Note the corporate double-speak we bolded.)
Hiring Refugees: We have a long history of hiring young people looking for opportunities and a pathway to a new life around the world. This is why we are doubling down on this commitment by working with our equity market employees as well as joint venture and licensed market partners in a concerted effort to welcome and seek opportunities for those fleeing war, violence, persecution and discrimination.  There are more than 65 million citizens of the world recognized as refugees by the United Nations, and we are developing plans to hire 10,000 of them over five years in the 75 countries around the world where Starbucks does business.  And we will start this effort here in the U.S. by making the initial focus of our hiring efforts on those individuals who have served with U.S. troops as interpreters and support personnel in the various countries where our military has asked for such support.
How long before the first Starbucks overseer/manager says "Work overtime for regular wages or you go back to your country to be killed for selling out to the occupation forces, Ahmed!"
