From the bottom of that article from the same link
-“The Tupelo, Miss.-based AFA says 550,000 people have signed a pledge to boycott Ford and it takes partial credit for the company’s financial problems.”-
I’m not a big fan of boycotts and there are a lot of things that I see Wal-Mart do that I don’t agree with. But that last paragraph of that article kind of upset me.
There’s a Ford plant here in Atlanta that closed recently and a lot of good people lost their jobs (as well as other factories in the US) . I don’t believe that most boycotts work and I don’t think it was very much a factor in the Ford case BUT I feel really sad about those people that lost jobs and that AFA is trying to take some of the credit.
