Starbucks is partnering with Care.com to roll out new child and elder care benefits to workers. 
Benefits include 10 subsidized care days a year, with in-home care costing just $1 per hour.
Corporate and in-store workers — including those working less than 20 hours a week — will have access to the new benefits.
While similar benefits for caregivers are available at companies including Apple and Home Depot, they are uncommon in the restaurant industry. 

As the battle to hire and retain workers heats up, Starbucks is rolling out new benefits for employees. 

On Tuesday, the coffee giant announced it had partnered with Care.com to offer all employees — both corporate and in-store, part-time and full-time — a new range of child and elder care benefits. See the rest of the story at Business Insider
