Join us for at Laurey's for good food, fun and conversation. We can socialize, get to know each other a bit better, continue the discussion from last Sunday's platform meeting - sustainable housing for homeless veterans... all while supporting and thanking this living wage paying employer! Let us know you're coming so we'll know how many tables we need. Come on out!
WHAT BUYCOTT IS: The Ethical Society of Asheville 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 WE DO IT: The process is easy. You or your organization can print “BUYCOTT thank-you” notes for your members to carry with them. We'll have extras with us. 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 DO IT: We want you and/or 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
