Rape and sexual harassment at work at Starbucks
In an interview with the American ABC television network, former Starbucks barista Kati Moore tells how she was sexually harassed and raped several times by her superior, Tim Horton (no link with the Canadian chain), when she held, at 16 years, his first job. When prosecutors in the state of California have been aware of the facts, they filed a complaint against the manager. But for reasons that are unknown, Starbucks leadership instead chose to defend his manager, paying his legal fees and Kati simply transferring to another branch. Despite the financial support of Starbucks, Tim Horton was found guilty and sentenced to prison.
