Starbucks endorses Referendum 71

Posted by Melissa Allison

Starbucks added its name to the list of major Northwest employers who support referendum 71, which would uphold Washington law that extends marriage-like benefits to gay, lesbian and some senior couples.

Last month, Boeing, Nike, Microsoft, Puget Sound Energy, RealNetworks and Vulcan issued a joint statement in favor of the measure.

Last Tuesday, Starbucks said it endorses and supports the approval of Referendum 71 because "it is aligned with our business practices, providing domestic partner benefits, and one of our core values of treating people with respect and dignity."
