It has now been been 8 months since the famous purveyor of caffeinated confection, Starbucks, declared their bathrooms “open to the public” without the need to purchase their products.
The last time we reported on the caffeine giant, a New York Post team had investigated several Manhattan bathrooms and found that there wasn’t an open stall among the stores they visited. Many employees complained of blood, discarded syringes, and potentially infectious materials strewn throughout the toilets.
Sensible corporate leaders might reconsider the open-door policy, in light of the health risks to both employees and their customers.
However, this is Starbucks we are talking about. Its executives opted to add a new menu item: Needle-disposal boxes.
