Re: The proposed Black Friday boycott of Walmart.
I understand those who want to protest against Walmart because of perceived discrimination against workers, whether it be due to race or gender, or because of its impact on smaller businesses. But the fact is that Walmart is a major part of the U.S. economy. Boycotting Walmart, even if it’s only for Black Friday, will cause the company to cut wages, which will mean they’re lower than the workers are complaining they are anyway.
Ultimately, though, there won’t be enough to fully boycott Walmart because people will think since everyone else will be boycotting so they’ll be able to get all the deals. Chances are a large group of people will think this, and the turnout will be the same as any other year anyway.
Essentially, resistance is futile, and Black Friday will happen like it would anyway.
