Each week 2ndVote takes a look at a popular company that scores poorly on the 2ndVote scoring system, and then provides some better alternatives for you to easily align your shopping dollars with your values. This series is called The Company Contrast, and the company we will be focusing on this week is T.J. Maxx (1.7 – Liberal).
T.J. Maxx is a department store owned by TJX Companies. TJX Companies also owns the brands Marshalls, HomeSense, Sierra Trading Post, and more. Even though T.J. Maxx is a popular place to buy affordable clothes, shopping at the department store undermines your values based on their continuous support of a leftist agenda.
T.J. Maxx scores a 1.7 on 2ndVote’s scoring system because of its contribution to the National Urban League, which supports same-sex marriage and the repeal of “Stand Your Ground” laws. T.J. Maxx also contributes to different organizations that advocate for sanctuary cities. To see all of the reasons T.J. Maxx scores so poorly, you can click on their company page here.
Fortunately, when you need to go department store shopping, but don’t want to sacrifice your conservative views, there are better alternatives out there. Dillards (3- Neutral) is a great place to shop without sacrificing your values. This company’s neutral stance on issues and commitment to its customers is why 2ndVote has deemed it a better alternative to T.J. Maxx.
