A Starbucks cafe which is staffed entirely by seniors opened up in Mexico City on Friday. This particular Starbucks will be staffed exclusively by elderly people, as part of an agreement between the coffee chain and the 'National Institute for Older Persons' to hire seniors and offer them an alternative to unemployment. «Part of our inclusion philosophy is to include seniors within Starbucks... Еще both in our existing stores and also, in this case, include a store operated 100 percent by seniors,» Starbucks Mexico CEO Christian Gurria said. For trainee Carmen Martinez, working at Starbucks has brought along certain benefits. «This work revives you because that energy of young people, being all the time with them, the coming and going of people, is something that makes you feel part of everything», she said. Sixty five people are currently involved in the programme. By the end of 2019, 130 people are expected to be working in different areas of the company, including stores managed exclusively by the elderly.
