    Good choice.

    Sad to hear from bullying at Starbucks in NYC, this company promotes itself as being part of the community.

    Oh, yeah. Let's let our employee training get so lax that the employees can violate Federal, state and city laws simultaneously, and let's do it in the city often claimed to have the most lawyers per capita.

    If true, they're going to get whacked every which way. And deservedly so

    The "If" sounds almost reassuring. Such cases seem more often in the news / happening at large corporations, it's very rare to hear about cases at smaller companies or individual owned coffee shops. As said above, I'm also surprised that these happened at a company which sees itself as part of their communities, I wonder how this can be true? Was this a rare case, or are there many unreported "tolerated" cases? Overall, If true, the employees and the company need to "pay" for their responsibilities. A very sad and unfortunate case, this only shows what people face in our "brave" new world.

    (bolding mine) It is NYC, after the first time of abuse, isn't there another coffee shop in NYC ?

    Of course the behavior of the employees should not be tolerated in the least, so write a complaint, stage a protest, talk to the mgr, get the point across, do what you have to do, etc.

    To go back in and re-engage abuse? seems very foolish to me.
