As you can tell, I'm catching up with reading Ms. Communicate. This is an interesting twist on boycotting companies.
quote:I'm a broke college student in need of a job. I also consider myself somewhat socially and politically conscious, so there are stores and companies I try my best to boycott. My issue is this: I don't support Chapters-Indigo, and I never step foot in a Starbucks, simply because I don't agree with their big box "clustering" mentality that puts the independents out of business, as well as their known ties to Israel. They also happen to be the only places nearby that are hiring at the moment.
Would I be a hypocrite for getting a job at these places I would never give my money to? It's my last resort at the moment, since I'm trying my best to avoid being in this crappy situation.
