Labor shuffles its feet!

Wal-Mart got a well deserved thumping today, courtesy of the Maryland state legislature. Naturally, the state's Republican governor did his level best to stop it (imagine a Republican going to bat for big business!), but the legislature showed both backbone and better sense and overrode his veto. Admittedly, the red states will resist this trend (if it becomes a trend), but if enoug blue states sign on Wal-Mart will have to give in. After all, the blue states are where the population is, and I doubt Wal-Mart will turn much profit catering only to states like Montana and Idaho, whose combined population is still less than NYC's.

I'm pleased to see that labor has not completely lost its teeth. As annoying as unions can be, I still trust them more than the likes of Wal-Mart.
