If you’re a fan of Starbucks, you need to get there early today because they will be closed this afternoon. Starbucks locations across Canada will close at 2:30pm today so workers can receive the same kind of anti-bias training that their U.S. counterparts experienced last month. Starbucks says the goal of this sensitivity training is to prevent discrimination at their stores. 1,100 locations and about 20,000 employees will participate. The training is expected to take several hours.
