I would apply to be a Wal-Mart Greeter, part-time, but, if the wage reaches that level, I expect that Wal-Mart will not be hiring Greeters. Too bad, there is one just up the street from where I live, here.

Wal-Mart was supposed to open five stores in the District of Columbia, but backed out of building the last two after it saw that the City Council and the Mayor had come out in favour of the fifteen banana minimum. The previous Mayor vetoed a similar measure, that was directed at larger operations such as Wal-Mart specifically because he saw what would happen. The across-the-Board fifteen dollar minimum has not been put into effect in D.C., yet.

It is even worse because the City seized land, in an abuse of Eminent Domain that Kelo vs. New London now allows, for one of the Wal-Marts that will not be built. It put more than few small business owners out of business to allow a multinational to take their livelihoods. The City put these small business owners out of business for what is not absolutely nothing.
