Starbuck Reverses Course, Will Not Require Employees to be Vaccinated


Starbucks just shocked everybody by reversing course on their vaccine requirements following the Supreme Court decision to reject Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates on large private businesses.

John Culver, the Chief Operating Officer for Starbucks, simply stated: “We respect the court’s ruling and will comply.”

This decision left conservative personalities on Twitter a bit puzzled.

A left-leaning company like Starbucks is willing to reverse their mandates, while Carhartt doubles down on their own?

This is bizarro world indeed…

Our friends at the Daily Wire have more on this surprising turn of events:

Starbucks announced in a memo this week that it will no longer require that its employees be vaccinated against the coronavirus after the Supreme Court rejected Democrat President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for large private businesses.

Starbucks Chief Operating Officer John Culver said, “We respect the court’s ruling and will comply.”

“In Tuesday’s memo, Culver said the company continues to strongly encourage vaccinations and booster shots,” the Associated Press reported. “The company also told workers on Tuesday that they shouldn’t wear cloth masks to work, and should instead use medical-grade surgical masks.”

The news left many Twitter users surprised, especially considering that Carharrt recently doubled down on their own mandates for employees:

Here’s more on Starbucks’ decision from the New York Times:

More than 90 percent of Starbucks workers in the United States have disclosed their vaccination status, according to the memo, and “the vast majority” are fully vaccinated. Starbucks, which operates nearly 9,000 stores in the United States, has about 200,000 domestic employees.

Since the Supreme Court’s decision last Thursday, Starbucks is one of the first major employers to backtrack on its plans to require vaccines. The ruling left large companies with the responsibility of deciding how to keep workers safe amid surging Covid-19 cases fueled by the highly infectious Omicron variant.

Wonders never cease.

If we’re truly at the point that even a liberal company such as Starbucks is willing to back off, maybe there’s still hope for the rest of the country.
