The Company Store

Photobucket
Another social statement by the late George Sawchuk in the Wacky Woods near Fanny Bay. For those that don’t remember, the company store was built in mining and logging towns. This permitted the owners to “earn” back the wages they paid to their employees. The owners built the houses, and charged the employees rent, built the company store which was the only store near by and made back a good portion of the wages paid.

The flag on the store in this picture is that of China. Are we buying at The Company Store? The Chinese are;
– buying up our resource companies
– lending us money
– supplying much of the merchandise we purchase

Think about it. As individuals we can choose what we do.
