It’s really quite unfortunate that capitalism fuses itself with politics and social issues. Sometimes I don’t know how to fight back other than not give them my business. Money is what matters most to them, right?
That Online Giant
I am often amazed by Amazon and order from there often. You can order just about anything you want and it shows up on your doorstep one to two days later. How do they do that?
My husband avoids Amazon as much as possible. It seems to be a morals vs. convenience situation and he took the high road.
My husband is very passionate about politics and social justice, and workers’ rights are very important to him.
But There Are Others…
My husband will not fill up at a BP station. He will drive to another part of town if he has to. This goes back to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010.
He’s not alone in boycotting businesses. I do it, too.
I will not shop at Hobby Lobby or eat at Chick-fil-A. I’ve avoided those businesses for years.
Chick-fil-A is very popular where we live and I stew in my anger every time I go by and see their drive-thru line so long that it’s spilling out into the street.
Hobby Lobby is easy for me to avoid. I shopped there occasionally before the insurance and birth control issues and I was always annoyed by the plethora of Christian items. Besides, Michael’s is better anyway.
I would love to hear what businesses you avoid.
