Liberal big government operates under the motto "We Know Best What's Good For You!"

What is amazing is how many drones bow to this.

Equally amazing that the flashing light "IDIOT" over their heads doesn't keep them awake at night.

Rather than rehash the damage that Franklin Roosevelt did to the economy by instigating the mortgage meltdown by occupying the private home mortgage industry with his shock troops....'Fannie Mae,'....here's one more casualty...actually 400 casualties....of big government meddling.


1. "Wal-Mart announced Jan. 15 it will close 269 stores globally, including 154 locations in the United States—affecting about 10,000 associates across the nation.
“The minimum wage in the city of Oakland played a factor, was one of the factors, they considered in closing the stores,” Oakland City Councilman Larry Reidtoldthe San Francisco Chronicle.

... this store has been very successful for Wal-mart.”

2. The Oakland location, which ranked among the city’s top sales-tax producers, closed its doors Sunday evening following the corporate announcement. The store’s 400 employees will stay on moving inventory through mid-February,reported the San Francisco Chronicle.



3. Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, a Democrat, has been leading statewide efforts to raise the minimum wage to $15.

“This higher city minimum wage eliminated the jobs of the very workers advocates wanted to help,” said James Sherk, a research fellow in labor economics at The Heritage Foundation.



4. California’s minimum wage rose to$10 an hour on Jan. 1. Oakland’s minimum wage was bumped from $9 to $12.25 in March 2015 and was raised to $12.55 at the start of this year.

5. “The true minimum wage is $0.00 an hour,” Sherk said.“Companies do not have to hire workers, and they will not pay them more than the value they create.”



6. If the Oakland Wal-Mart workers don’t find employment by Feb. 10, they will get 60 days of additional pay and a severance package with a week of pay for every year employed by Wal-Mart, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.



7. The San Francisco Chronicle says two Wal-Mart locations in Oakland’s neighboring city ofSan Leandro, where minimum wage is $10, will remain open.


8. The difference between these three locations is the Oakland Wal-Mart has over a 25 percent difference in labor costs for entry-level employees than the San Leandro locations, says Mark Perry, an American Enterprise Institute scholar and professor of economics and finance at the University of Michigan’s Flint campus.

9. “Given the reality that Wal-Mart operates on razor-thin profit margins (only 2.8 percent last quarter), a 25 percent difference in labor costs for entry-level workers can be the difference between a store that turns a profit and a store that barely breaks even, or loses money,” Perrywrote.
Oakland’s Minimum Wage Is Up, Wal-Mart Is Out


One more success story for theDemocrts/Liberals/Progressives who know best.

Most of the Walmart store closings are occurring in states where the minimum wage is at the federal minimum wage, or lower.

Tell the whole story for once, liar.

rdean said he was going to make you tone it down. How is that going for you. :lol:

The effects are even worse in rural areas where Walmart's presence drove out small groceries, that will now have no grocery stores after the exodus of Walmart. Lost jobs and higher food costs factoring in travel.

So Wal Mart is closing 269 store globally, including 115 outside the united States, because ONE CITY raised its minimum wage? Really?

You do realize that WalMart has a history of opening stores in town, driving all the local business out of business, and then closing up shop after they've become the only alternative, right?

The damage done by Walmart putting all the small stores out of business is already done, but the closed stores are all within 10 miles of another Walmart that is staying open.

Here's a map of the Walmart closings recently announced:

As you see, most are in conservative southern states where in most cases the minimum wage is no higher than the federal minimum wage or the California minimum wage.

Soon, very very soon Comrade Sanders will NATIONALIZE Walmart stores and "teach" (wink, wink) them how to make a profit.

Mexico will finish constructing the border wall in order to prevent Americans from entering Mexico. Mark my words.

Bulletin: it is the same damage done by the automobile manufacturers in putting the buggy whip companies out of business.

I wonder if the good comrade Sanders is still driving his Trabant?

"The Trabant is an automobile that was produced by former East German auto maker VEB Sachsenring Automobilwerke Zwickau in Zwickau, Sachsen. It was the most common vehicle in East Germany, and was also exported to countries both inside and outside the communist bloc. The main selling point was that it had room for four adults and luggage in a compact, light and durable shell. Despite its mediocre performance and smoky two-stroke engine, the car is regarded with derisive affection as a symbol of the failed former East Germany and of the fall of communism (in former West Germany, as many East Germans streamed into West Berlin and West Germany in their Trabants after the opening of the Berlin Wall in 1989). For advocates of capitalism it is often cited as an example of the disadvantages of centralized planning as even refueling the car required lifting the hood, filling the tank with gasoline (only 24 litres[1]), then adding two-stroke oil and shaking it back and forth to mix. It was in production without any significant changes for nearly 30 years with 3,096,099 Trabants produced in total."
Trabant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


And, there is this:
...the man who goes to buy a car in Moscow, pays for it, and is told by the salesman that he can collect it on a particular date in 10 years' time. The buyer thinks for a moment and then asks: 'Morning or afternoon?'
The salesman, astonished by the question, asks: 'What difference does it make?'
And the buyer answers: 'Well, the plumber is coming in the morning.'
