During Starbucks' training today, Schultz said, employees will "be sharing life experiences, hearing from others, listening to experts, reflecting on the realities of bias in our society and talking about how all of us create public spaces where everyone feels like they belong - because they do". Starbucks locations will open with normal hours on Wednesday.

Starbucks shut down all of its 8,000 company-operated stores Tuesday afternoon to conduct anti-bias training for their more than 175,000 employees. The store manager called police saying the men didn't buy anything and refused to leave. They were waiting for a friend to show up, who did as they were taken out in handcuffs for doing nothing. They also accepted from the city of Philadelphia a symbolic $1 each and a promise to launch a $200,000 program for young entrepreneurs.
