So far what they get out of it is definitely more valuable. Now theoretically his uniform business could be effective if he could rally a whole lot more people, several hundred or a thousand uniformed men and do so consistently, under those conditions he would have some power to seriously stress the finances of smaller cities and even larger ones, and obviously politicians hate having uniformed Nazies in their cities, so that could give someone like White some means to extort concessions out of local politicians.
