WHAT: The Ethical Society of Asheville has initiated a “BUYCOTT for a Living Wage” to thank and support businesses that have been certified as Living-Wage Employers by Just Economics of WNC. Certified businesses are listed at www.justeconomicswnc.org. HOW: The process is easy. Your organization prints “BUYCOTT thank-you” notes for your members to carry with them. Members who patronize a living-wage business hand the cashier or waiter a thank-you note explaining that one reason for patronizing them is that they pay a living wage. Members’ BUYCOTT shopping thanks the owners and helps the business’s bottom line.

WHY: We want your organization to join us in this BUYCOTT so as to:
• Encourage more businesses to pay their employees a Living Wage
• Make sure Living-Wage Employers get certified and become known in the community
• Bring more shoppers to patronize certified businesses at every opportunity
• Publicize the BUYCOTT throughout the region to help make all of WNC a Living-Wage community

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
