Starbucks Has to Install Needle-Disposal Boxes

After getting mau-maued by the belligerently oppressed, Starbucks expressed its capitulation to leftist bullies by opening its restrooms even to noncustomers. As noted previously, this has not worked out well. Baristas have been getting pricked with drug fiends’ needles. The clientele now frequenting Starbucks restrooms has required the installation of needle-disposal boxes in which it is hoped junkies will deposit their syringes:

The coffee giant is exploring remedies after employees expressed fears about being pricked by uncapped needles and experiencing related health risks. …

In October, three Starbucks employees in Seattle told local news that they encountered hypodermic needles on the job nearly every day. They said they had to take antiviral medications to protect themselves from HIV and hepatitis. …

People who are inadvertently pricked by needles often pay hundreds of dollars out of pocket for emergency-room visits, tests, and medication.

In addition to the potentially lethal needles, Starbucks employees encounter other detritus of degeneracy such as drugs, alcohol bottles, blood on the walls, and used condoms.

One problem with needle-disposal boxes is that they signal that Starbucks restrooms are an appropriate place to inject drugs, which will make for even more degeneracy. Another is that the sort of lowlifes who shoot up in public restrooms probably will not use them anyway because they are not conscientious enough to care where their needles end up; readers are referred to the streets of San Francisco.

Although it would not completely solve the problem, a better solution would be to limit use of the bathrooms to paying customers, as before. But of course, that is not an option for Starbucks, because someone might call them racist.
