Over the last month or so we have been reading reports about how several companies have been adopting new policies in regard to important social issues such as racial diversity and increasing the minimum wage. Just this past week Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks, fostered a conversation about race relations in America by asking all of his baristas to write #racetogether on all of their Starbucks cup orders. In January, Aetna raised the public conversation around increasing the minimum wage for its hourly employees suggesting that it is time for American business to be more engaged in improving the lives of people across the country. Walmart has made similar moves to increase hourly wages in recent weeks.
