The situation in our country is becoming desperate and calls for desperate action that goes way beyond political ideology. If our towns are to survive, if our state is to survive, if our country is to survive, if our people are to survive, we have to get beyond class warfare and business bashing.
As Lowe’s has shown, no business is obligated to keep its doors open if it’s not profitable for them to do so. They can shut down, as is the case of Aubuchon in Port Henry, or like Lowe’s, just pick up their chips and leave. Instead of penalizing potential employers why not try to facilitate their success, because in the end, we all win when local businesses succeed.
