You miss my meaning.

If you know a business is using their profits to further a political agenda, boycott that business.

Or maybe he didn't miss your meaning and is simply pointing out exactly what he said.

You can quit a job if they are using profits to further a political agenda you are against.

Yes, you can. Quitting a job is a reasonable idea for only some people.

I know I couldn't quit my job, but some can.

So why suggest it as if it's a reasonable idea?


Anyway, back to my point. Many many people say unions have outlived their usefulness but almost no one says the same thing about corporations. Why is that?

Because if my company did something that I was very against, I would start looking for a new job. I couldn't quit until I found a new job, but I am very confident I could find a new job rather quickly.
