    Wouldn't it be great if locality after locality took a good luck at the low-paying jobs WalMart brought to their communities some years back when hope was high. How the local taxpayer is subsidizing the place with food stamps and other benefits for the workers having such low pay. Maybe they will look back at their communities with fond memories when there was more than one game in town.

    Now there is a remedy! Just pass a town ordinance that any store of blankety-blank square feet,or over over so many employees MUST pay (insert adequate salary here) to each and every worker. If WalMart gets in a snit and pulls up stakes, the locality actually probably wins.

    This leaves a large building with huge parking lot and I am  betting some clever people could figure that out to put it to good use.

    Just an idea that popped into my head.

    One should never consider yourself too poor to support the ACLU.
