I am more than a little tired of companies not paying living wages. I have to do my small bit to help, since I understand how hard it is to be poor and desperate. Several years ago, I dropped my shopping at Wal-Mart from 3 or 4 times a month to maybe 6 times a year. Here is my pledge: For the next 6 months, I will not shop at Wal-Mart, eat at McDonalds, or Burger King. I will encourage others to stop fueling these businesses with their dollars. I will send letters to the companies telling them what I am doing.

Will you join me? If not 6 months, will you pledge a month? Don't spend your money where employees are not treated well.

You choose the company that offends you the most.
Abstain from shopping there for a specified period of time.
Send a letter or e-mail to the company telling them what you are doing and why you are doing it.
Encourage others to do something definite, too!

Will you join me and encourage others to do the same? Feel free to like and repost this.

I admire your actions, Connie.

I don't eat fast food very often so that is not a problem for me. As for Walmart, I don't shop much there, but some items I need I only buy there. Because of an extremely tight budget due to a low paying job, I need to go where I can afford to shop. I don't have a choice but to go to Walmart for some of my necessities, including prescriptions.
