Starbucks is giving baristas paid sick leave and stock bonuses
For the first time in its history, Starbucks is giving all of its baristas sick leave. A part-time employee working 23 hours a week will get 5 days of sick leave over the course of the year starting July 1, the company said. Starbucks is also giving baristas $500 in stock grants (store managers get $2000). Employees will now get paid parental leave for up to six weeks, including if they are not the birth parent.
