I won't support local businesses that don't support the locals.
I've boycotted a former employer because he stopped hiring locals in favor of backpackers because they have no idea what a standard wage is. He even
planned to build a trailer park for the backpackers so the money they earned would go straight back into his pocket. A good friend of mine was laid
off and replaced by an Indian-No explanation, he was just laid off.
I wish I could boycott every business that outsource their jobs, sadly that is not possible. But if I were to point the finger at anyone, it would be
apple. I have never used and hopefully I will never use their products, Listening to them boast about quarterly profits while they avoid paying their
fair share of taxes while outsourcing jobs irks me.
