Walmart finally goes into Chicago.

After a long battle Walmart finally is let into Chicago. They were kept out because they did not pay a "living wage", whatever that is supposed to mean. So Walmart took their jobs and tax base to the suburbs. Apparently the bad economy is bad enough to make the nay-sayers see the light. Senator Phil Gramm said it best...."the greatest social program in the world is a W2 form." Amen and good luck to those peeps looking to fill the 10,000 new jobs at Walmart.

Wouldn't a "living wage" be $7.25 per hour - according to our own government? Anything beyond that might be considered "wage profits" or "excess charges" by greedy workers.
