Starbucks shut down all of its 8,000 company-operated stores Tuesday afternoon to conduct anti-bias training for their more than 175,000 employees.

The men reached a legal settlement with the city of Philadelphia for the sum of $1, in addition to the promise of a $200,000 grant to fund a pilot program aimed at helping local high-schoolers become entrepreneurs.
