Think about your local food, local crafts, local services.
I have a major pet peeve.
Globalization brings us automated checkouts, which benefit the shareholders in distant lands but not our local economy.
Localization brings us a human being who checks out our goods, shops at local stores, supports local charities, and is our neighbor. I have had arguments with staff at checkouts at Canadan Tire, Home Depot and London Drugs who try to tell me the automated checkouts somehow increase jobs.
It’s BS.
It’s a corporate lie.
We do not have to allow it to happen.
I never use the automated tellers and if they take away the human-operated checkouts, I will take my trade elsewhere.
