    are not spent. They are just spent in another establishment that chooses to not politicize its business practices; ergo; the demand for workers shifts from one store to another. It may not be instantaneous but it will happen.

    As I said in another diary shifting pizza purchasing power from Pappa John's to local Mom and Pop stores may actually increase the number of jobs available. PJ's has pizza making and distribution down to a science; local stores are not nearly as efficient and may require 1.5 to 2 employees to crank out the same number of pies as 1 PJ's employee.
