After years of being trashed by left-wing leaders, the giant has decided to tell them, alright…
Walmart has been blocked by liberal politicians and unions in New York and Boston from its next frontier, remaking retail in the nation’s urban core, the scum-ridden markets of black consumers in our Nation’s Embarrassment, known to us as Washington D.C. But in the District, Walmart had won the right to open stores surrounding the U.S. Capitol — and a symbolic victory for its belief that low-price goods help its poor customers more than low-wage jobs hurt its workers. Another hot-button Liberal issue.
There was simply no way that Walmart could please the Gruber’s from the Progressive Left.
Even when they comply with the wishes of the Left and begin shutting down their mega-stores, the liberal bastards whine.
D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) said at a Friday news conference,
“I’m blood mad!”
Former mayor Vincent C. Gray (D), who in 2013 completed the handshake deal for the stores says,
“It’s an outrage! This is devastating and disrespectful to the residents of the East End of the District of Columbia.”
Fuck you Muriel. Fuck you Vincint.
One Walmart official, Mike Moore, Walmart’s executive vice president of supercenters, was more frank about the reasons the company was downsizing. He said the company cited the District’s rising minimum wage, now at $11.50 an hour and possibly going to $15 an hour if a proposed ballot measure is successful in November. He also said a proposal for legislation requiring D.C. employers to pay into a fund for family and medical leave for employees, and another effort to require a minimum amount of hours for hourly workers were compounding costs and concerns for the retailer.
They finally seem to get it.
Too bad. Because the ignorant leftists like Muriel and Vincent never will.
I hope that the blacks of D.C. will have to pay three times the going rates for their provided goods. I hope they remain, forever, in poverty’s grip. They could always leave. And go back to Africa.
