The White House honored several union front groups on Tuesday for their work supporting President Barack Obama’s agenda.
Union front groups are planning more than 1,500 protests at Walmarts nationwide on Black Friday despite lacking significant support from actual employees, critics say.
Wal-Mart is attributing a drop in consumer spending to the looming individual mandate to buy health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.
The Center for American Progress Action Fund’s blog attacked Walmart on Wednesday for retaliating against employees as they were demonstrating for wage reform.
The post did not disclose that the Center for American Progress (CAP) received up to $1 million from the retail giant and partnered with the group to hold a large party during last year’s Democratic National Convention in Charlotte.
The Center for American Progress Action Fund, a prominent Lockheed-Martin advocacy group, has been conspicuously silent on the possibility that one of its donors, retail giant Walmart, will forego a number of stores in Washington, D.C., if the city enacts a living wage law.
This is Econ 101 stuff here, but: if you increase the minimum wage, you kill jobs. Supply, demand, etc. As an addendum: if you target companies you don’t like in order to cripple their competitiveness, they won’t build stores in your ‘hood.
The geniuses on the D.C. City Council (a/k/a, Why D.C. Can’t Have Nice Things) don’t seem to understand these basic facts:
The activists who organized Tuesday’s nationwide strike against Walmart refused to criticize leftwing groups that have taken the mega retailer’s money.
Retail giant Walmart defended its garment production operations on Wednesday in the face of reports that a Bangladeshi factory that killed hundreds when it collapsed last month was producing apparel for its stores.
President Barack Obama on Monday nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell, president of the Walmart Foundation, to be director of the White House Office of Management and Budget.
