New York City labor leaders and their political beneficiaries made a spectacle of themselves this week in their mission to keep Wal-Mart and its everyday low prices out of the city.
The loony protestors, who pranced around City Hall Wednesday ripping up fake checks from Wal-Mart, contend that the retailer’s $3 million in donations to local charitable organizations over the past year should be returned because Wal-Mart is not welcome in New York City, the Epoch Times reports.
We wonder if the needy people who benefit from those donations want to see the money sent back. If the company is so terrible, why not take its money and do some good with it?
Of course, none of this really has anything to do with Wal-Mart’s charitable endeavors.
Wal-Mart, the world’s largest private employer, does not employ unionized workers, which is why NYC labor leaders have successfully prevented the superstore chain from doing business in the city.
