Starbucks Create Jobs for USA

Starbucks has launched Create Jobs for USA, a campaign deisgned to create and sustain jobs across the country, collaborating with GOOD/Corps, a social innovation firm in Los Angeles affiliated with GOOD Magazine. Create Jobs for USA is an initiative to collect funds for job creation through grassroots community businesses. Starting today, you can walk into any of the 7,000 Starbucks locations nationwide, make a $5 donation, and Starbucks will give 100% of that money to community development financial institutions (CDFIs).

GOOD/Corps created infographic GOODSheets, available at every Starbucks store around the country, helping customers to visualize the intricacies of the campaign while standing in line or waiting for their beverage.

  • As a consultant to the salon industry our average owner is a female hairstylist with a vocational degree and a ton of good common sense and customer service sense. The economy has hurt our clients with slow down in visit cycles, drops in retail sales, and just some clients not having the money to get hair services. I am inspired by the Starbucks initiative to create jobs. The opportunity financ…e site and other financing options offer hope to our cash strapped salons. I am going to encourage all of our salons who need help to check out these options. There are 200,000 salons employing an average of 3 stylists each. Plus all the spas, nail techs and others. A HUGE number of people all paid by these hard working salon owners. Thank you for the hope and help! Fred Dengler MIKAL Salon Software
