Dollar General (DG) symbolizes everything wrong with America’s economy

Dollar General (DG) symbolizes everything people hate about America’s economy.

Progressives hate Dollar General because it cashes in on income inequality and wage stagnation. The Trumpists hate Dollar General because its shelves are stuffed with low-cost merchandise from China.

In particular, City Lab charges dollar stores thrive in the poorest of rural towns where there is no economic activity. In addition, dollar stores are often the only retailer left in devastated urban areas.
