Wal-Mart to takeover Cleveland

I ran across the No Cleveland Walmart website today. Unfortunately, I believe it is too little, too late, as Walmart is moving full speed ahead on their plans to build a Supercenter in downtown Cleveland in the old Steelyard Commons area. Cleveland’s inept mayor, Jane Campbell, is all smiles and bragging about how many jobs it will bring to the area. Great job Jane…just what Cleveland, the most impoverished city in the nation needs, more jobs paying wages well below the cost of living. Put the unionized grocers and other independent stores out of business so Walmart can send all the profits back home to Arkansas while paying it’s workers $7/hr.
