Whether or not Wal-Mart needs the District, it had spent the past three years wanting to enter the city in a way no other business had. Activists celebrated Wednesday’s vote, saying the company, which reported net income of $17 billion on sales of $470 billion in its most recent fiscal year, could afford to pay better wages. But the council action threatens to halt several developments anchored by Wal-Mart in neighborhoods long underserved. “Nothing has changed from our perspective,” Wal-Mart said in a statement after the vote, reiterating that the company will abandon plans for three not yet built stores and “review the financial and legal implications” of not opening three others under construction.
Once again we see stupidity overcome good sense.
This thinking is so prevalent.
Not only is this law discriminatory against a business that happens to be non-union which is likened to criminal behavior by the Marxist/Progressives, but it costs the city property taxes and sales taxes. The Marxist/Progressives, including their leader Obama, have always lived with their heads in the clouds.
