People are quick to slag on Starbucks, as new locations open up on every corner of every city. However, I love the atmosphere. I love the employees. I love the internet connections. I LOVE the coffee. I also love the fact that they offer health benefits to ALL their employees. In today's economy, it frightens me to think of how many American citizens work full-time and are NOT offered access to health care benefits. So, I will sit here and drink my coffee. I will drink it, and I will appreciate the fact that this company cares for the employees working for them.
In short, drop Perez and hit the Starbucks drive-thru!
