Whistle While You Work

“About six months ago, Will Wilkerson was the executive vice president of operations for former president Donald Trump’s media business, a co-founder of Trump’s Truth Social website and a holder of stock options that might have one day made him a millionaire. Today, he is a certified barista trainer at a Starbucks inside a Harris Teeter grocery store, where he works 5:30 a.m. shifts in a green apron and slip-resistant shoes, making Frappuccinos for $16 an hour.” I’d call that a promotion. I’d also call this a strange, interesting story about a whistleblower (though I’m not sure a business that involves a SPAC and Donald Trump really needed a whistleblower to let you know it wasn’t on the up and up). He blew the whistle on Trump’s Truth Social. Now he works at Starbucks. (He’s probably the first barista to be able to say he came from a business with more froth.)
