Given that Black Friday is near, how do you reconcile your LBYM life with your ethics? I am thinking of WalMart in particular. We know they have low prices--but at what cost to the people who work there? How do you reconcile your desire to spend less money with your ethical considerations?Look at it this way - if there were no shoppers there would be no jobs.Then all the people you are concerned about would be out of work altogether. What happens to your ethics at that point?Further, everytime I have seen a Wal-Mart open a new store, it isn't long before there are a number of new stores, restaurants and banks that come into the immediate vicinity - if not using the same parking lot. If the wage scale in those places is higher employees could always change jobs - possibly using the experience they gained at Wal-Mart.Ima
