I was at the store this weekend, (atleast I got what I went after this time), someone was getting an XM radio, they had finished asking someone about some station on it and I let them know that XM had employed about 200 people here in town and let them go last month when they sent thier jobs to Jamacia, he still got the radio.

If I knew a place had done that, I would probaly avoid their product, especially since its in the town you live in.

Why?

Do you not support a business making a profit?

Do you even understand WHY they had to relocate?


Have you put any real thought or research into this at all?

Do you think the company OWES people a job?

Why?


If you were the owner of a company wouldn't YOU do everything possible to keep it profitable?

After all, you have a responsibility to your stockholders also...who just happen to often be middleclass people themselves.

So why should THEY suffer for your town?

Tell me...WHY TAXMAN?

I think the case fans were but they were not on sale like they were posted, so no case fans for me.

I think its a business' right to send their jobs over seas just as its my right to buy domestic. I'm with Taxman on this. Bravo too. I don't blame companies who suffer under US Labor Unions to turn a profit but I do blame consumers who ignore the trade deficit.
