Economic Stupidity

Leave it to the city of Chicago to destroy the "working people."

After weeks of mounting pressure on both sides and after a passionate three-hour debate, Chicago aldermen voted 35 to 14 Wednesday to force Wal-Mart and other big-box retailers to pay at least $10 an hour by 2010.

What do these idiots think Walmart is going to do? Well......they're going to move to the surrounding suburbs and all those current workers will be laid off. The stupidity of democrats never ceases to amaze me. The following had me laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes.

"With a vote and a stroke of the pen we … can lift over 10,000 Chicago workers out of poverty wages," said Ald. Joe Moore (49th), the ordinance's chief sponsor.

I guess Ald Moore has a point, those 10,000 Chicago workers won't be paid "poverty wages" they won't be getting paid at all.

The Daley machine is back to work. The poor workers will be without a job and the welfare rolls will swell in the City of Big Shoulders. The ACLU is out to destroy this country in any possible.
