There's a lot of discontent brewing around the world and many are still trying to figure out if the Occupy Wall St. movement is something they can stand behind. Some are afraid to join the protests in fear of aligning themselves with a progressive movement rooted in leftist ideology. But the broad message that protesters around the world are sending is something almost all of us can agree on. Our financial system has evolved into a behemoth giant that needs to be slayed. Bankers and investors have played the system like it was a game of roulette and our lawmakers stood by and did nothing. And when the gamble failed, they bailed them out.
Taxpayers are fed up.
Jobs are on everyones' mind these days and massive unemployment has led many entrepreneurs to start small businesses. Supporting this growing segment of the population is a great way to boost the economy of the working class and help to sustain sorely needed jobs.
So the next time you think about a trip to a big box store or an online purchase from Amazon.com, consider supporting your local businesses or small independent merchants on the web. Your purchases can help keep them from joining the unemployed.
Together we can create a more sustainable economy where small businesses can thrive. Isn't that something we all can get behind?
