    A Starbucks employee remains unconscious and in an intensive care unit Wednesday, after a man attacked two baristas in a West Broad Street store early Monday morning.

    I wonder exactly who's safety she is referring to? Its certainly not the safety of their employees or customers she's talking about. She must be talking about the safety of the executives as they sit in their ivory offices behind armed security guards.

    Safety of their bottom line... profits are what matter... there are tons of customers and employees are easy to replace.
