So you've probably seen by now that Whole Foods CEO John Mackey has publicly come out against health care reform. This does not seem to be an exceptionally bright move for a company with a liberal customer base, and we're starting to see a backlash. In fact, people are using Whole Foods' own web forums to call for a boycott! Is this really a reason to boycott a company, though? I would say no. The company overall seems to be somewhat sympathetic to liberal causes, and certainly treats its employees well (though, like Wal-Mart, they are vehemently anti-union). One guy spouting off isn't enough to make me want to participate in a boycott. If you're going to stop shopping at Whole Foods, do it for the right reason: because it's too damned expensive.
