Student loan assistance for long time partners.

Starbucks Coffee Company should assist long time partners with paying back student loans. Starbucks has recently partnered up with ASU in offering employees an undergraduate degree online through Arizona State University. This is a wonderful opportunity for partners who would otherwise be unable to attend college. While this is a great benefit of working for the company for new partners, it is unfair to those of us partners who had been with the company long before this newly offered tuition program was created. As a partner who already has a degree and student loans to go with it, I'd like to see Starbucks offer assistance paying back these loans. Had I known Starbucks was going to create the tuition program, I would have not gone to school and I would have waited to participate in the free college program as well.

Why is this important?

This is important because long time partners such as myself have grown with and supported the company through all its many changes over the years. We have been faithful and worked hard to make the company what it is today.

Reasons for signing

  • I believe that partners should not have to sacrifice their financial well-being in order to receive a proper education. By investing in partners & helping to pay off pre-existing student loans or loans associated with other accredited schools, Starbucks can show that they are serious about helping partners not only further their education, but improve their lives while not struggling with debt.
  • I am in the process of going to ASU through Starbucks, however, I would like to see other share in the opportunity to get a free enducation by getting the assistance needed to pay back their student loans.
  • Id like us to have a choice on which school we want to go too
