Please support working families. Parental leave should not be an "elite" privilege.

All employees, corporate and those caring for the customers, should be entitled to the same paid maternity or paternity leave.

I have been a partner on and off for almost 8 yrs. I have a 4 yr old and didn't get enough time when he was born. He was in the NICU off and on for almost 2 months. He had heart problems and I was stressed about work when it should have only been my first born son. People behind a desk aren't any better then we are as barista. We all should be equal in sick leave and maternity as well.

Equal benefits for baristas. They are hard working employees and deserve the same benefits as corporate employees.

New parents are new parents..regardless of position. ..any policy should reflect this..especially one from an organization such as Starbucks...its better to lead by example than to follow others

I think everyone should be treat fair not just the big wheels. I think if a father or mother has to stay because a child is real sick then they should have to worry about their job on the other side of the coin if a parent just uses their child as excuse then they should be wrote up and off without pay. DON'T USE your Child to Play NO ONE
