This development is a pressing reminder that every time you spend a dollar, you're casting a vote. Whether you're purchasing a movie ticket, buying a dress, or attending an event, the choices you make shape the world around you and influence your future options. Money makes the world go round, and as consumers, we have far more say in the ways of the world than we think we do. Choose wisely.
