Our aldermen, in defiance of the mayor's wishes, have passed a "big box living wage" ordinance that was backed by organized labor.
Which means that WalMart and Target have to pay higher wages than smaller retailers do.
I'm hoping for a legal solution,
Like some court saying it violates the constitution.
Meanwhile, I bet this stops
WalMart and Target from building new shops
Inside the city proper.
Our suburbs will welcome the shoppers.
