Starbucks manager comes up with idea of giving away two months of tips to charity
The Greencastle Starbucks store manager who decided that baristas' tips from September and October should go to charity recently left the company to start her own business. (Eyebrow raised.) She claims that everyone was on board with the plan.
"Not one single one of our employees said, 'Oh, so we're not going to get to keep our tips?'" said Deb Gould. "The team has embraced the whole idea."
