  •  But what about Staples? (2+ / 0-)

    I laugh when I hear the latest Republican mantra that Staples has created good, middle class jobs.

    I look at the stockers and the cashiers and the sales help at Staples, and I'm guessing they ain't making a so-called "middle class" wage.

    Retail work has traditionally been the way married women and the daughters of the working class supplemented income.

    The faces may have changed, but not the wages.

    2012: George Bailey capitalism v. Henry Potter capitalism. Do Republicans really want that argument?
