    Seems there has been a wave of corporate altruism of late. I wonder if we're witnessing a new enterprise paradigm?

    Is this forreals? This is an amazing opportunity for the starbucks workers!! Too bad once they get their bachelors degree, they are going to leave Starbucks and find a better job!

    For the most part that is pretty much what happens anyway. Pouring coffee at Starbucks is not a career job for most. Just a job to get through school so why not help those people do it. Who knows some of them might stick around and become managers or move into higher positions. I don't think it is starbucks intent to have a bunch of college educated people pouring coffee.
