Nathan Newman points hopefully to the Montana State Senate, where the new Democratic majority is debating a bill to fight Wal-Mart’s low wages.
Here, low prices trump low wages. Our Super Wal-Mart opened nearly a year ago. There are those who hate it and stay away, but for the vast majority, blissfully unaware or dismissive of the store’s critics, it’s the shopping venue of choice.
If you doubt the evils of Wal-Mart, a must-read is the comprehensive December New York Review of Books, “Inside the Leviathan;” a must-view is the excellent Frontline documentary, “Is Wal-Mart Good for America?” You can view it in its entirety online.
