Company outsourcing does not promote ‘buy local’

Goodbye to the Rockford Register Star. I try to buy local, and if a company outsources, it is no longer local. I understand it is owned by a company that is not [in] Rockford, but most newspapers are. But to fire your Rockford employees and send that work to Chicago, well, goodbye, remembering the people you just put out of work.
