I really need a job, but do not want to work at a place that supports cruelty. There are a lot of large eastern US chains in my area and I know of the big ones that are cruel, but i don’t want to accidentally work for evil…so please comment(:
It is actually pretty hard to avoid all types of cruelty now days mostly when you are talking about a no experience, minimum wage, starting position job. Even if you work for a smaller local place the chances of working with meat or other products is pretty likely. I’d say just first try for the jobs that don’t seem so obviously cruel.
I myself for example try to avoid applying at fast food chains and instead try and apply for front desk or housekeeping jobs at hotels. I mean you aren’t going to have to work with meat really that way but you will likely be dealing with products tested on animals or mouse traps and things like that.
You could try applying at clothing stores but just stay away from places that sell fur, leather, silk, wool, down etc. Which is also very hard to do though I would say you have a safer bet at going to a store that doesn’t like specialize in one of those things. You could also try thrift stores and stuff like Goodwill as even when they sell leather and fur it is being handed down to some one less fortunate and the money isn’t going to the people who are making the fur etc.
I’m trying to think of a job that would be linked to no cruelty. Maybe some specialty stores like gaming or things like that or obviously any vegan or animal rights type places.
When it comes down to it you just have to go with the lesser of two evils. Like even if I had to compare Walmart to McDonalds I would rather work at Walmart.
