    Re: Walmart says it will kill plans to build 3 new stores if DC wage bill passes

    How about this? Don't like Walmart, don't shop there. Apparently those who work at Walmart do so for various reasons. One is because some are retired and want part-time work. Another is because they can't find a job anywhere else, in many instances because they don't have the skills, training, or education necessary.

    When will those pushing a "living minimum wage" understand implementation will restrict job growth and create more unemployment, not create jobs. (Like it or not)

    In other words, it will do much more harm than good to those you want the government, i. e. taxpayers, to care for.

    Walmart will be unethical profiteers as that is their business model. Not all communities want to have that model around.

    that would go a long way to healing the festering boil.

    A higher payed Unionized low skilled workforce would simply be offset with higher prices for WallMart Consumers, who would then find better deals with their competitors.

    WallMart would respond by laying off thousands of workers, closing stores and eventually going away.

    Typical short sighted liberalism.


    That's retarded.

    I think the extra 4 bucks is to cover all the aggrivation that stems from dealing with the people of Walmart all day long.

    That's their prerogative. If DC thinks Wal-Mart isn't good for their community, then they can pass laws that would discourage Wal-Mart from building there. I just think it's laughable to pretend it's any punishment for Wal-Mart. It's more like cutting off one's nose to spite one's face.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    It isn't supposed to be punishment. DC simply said exploit somewhere else. That is good.

    No, the politicians of DC said that. Simply put if the PEOPLE of DC don't want a Walmart, they won't shop there. So why the need to get politicians involved if the people can do the same thing with their wallet.

    People like to complain about Walmart, but obviously there are PLENTY of people that would shop there because Walmart wouldn't be looking to put 6 stores in otherwise. While I don't like what Walmart does, it's the people's fault.

    Government should not be involved in this.

    Sure it is.

    Exploitation can happen even with choice.
