Just wondering. I mean, we know that jobs are hard to come by these days, so I have to figure that any opportunity for employment would be a good thing. But if the employer is Wal-Mart, that’s enough to make some people argue that any job there would not be worth having, and as the article mentions, there is something utterly bizarre about the way in which small business owners lash out at Wal-Mart. I understand that Wal-Mart is a competitor if one owns a hardware store, but very few small business owners are as hostile towards competing businesses as they are to Wal-Mart.
I’ve never been able to figure out this brand of hysteria, and never will. It’s especially mystifying to behold in a time of continuing economic difficulty.
