Or, use your
I am thrilled to see the initiative taken by our council on this matter. DC can get away with it, as lobbyists find it difficult to spend money on such a small district that can't do favors for the rest of the country when votes come up, but Florida is another matter. Thanks to good ole Citizens United, a few people will spend a ton of money and make a few lobbyists and politicians rich, and the wage earners of this county will suffer, and it will be you and I paying for their food stamps and healthcare because at full time pay rates these workers are at or below the poverty level. It may hurt Walmart's stock price, but sooner or later they will have to negotiate paying its employee more of a living wage to the point that workers do not need to depend on Uncle Sam to subsidize their food bill or rent, or healthcare. Make huge conglomerates pay the living wage and suddenly the price goes up, but I would rather have the choice to pay it at a Walmart if I want it instead of paying it to the government to distribute it.
