Most of the jobs created by retail sales, are minimum wage after school jobs, occupied by gay latch key teenagers, that don't really contribute squat to a local economy. After all, 90+% of the crap that they're selling comes from China, including the Apple computer product. Unless you decide to count the raise in your own property taxes brought on by the new mall nearby, that allegedly increases the value of you home. I'm sure your mayor and local tax board appreciates your "selfless" contribution."most PC fans shop at newegg/tigerdirect/steam"
That's a great way to support your local economy. It's no wonder you can't afford an Apple with no jobs left in your town. (lol)
