Framed

All of this is literally by my house. It's so frustrating because from Wheat Ridge, the section of Denver they're talking about, Lakewood (a large part of which is right between that section of Denver and Wheat Ridge).... there's multiple Wal-Marts, Walgreens, etc within a 5-10 minute drive. In some areas, that might seem long, but we're currently laid out more like LA- a shit ton of sprawl. So if you can get there in under 15, it's considered close. They're putting them a lot of time 10 blocks or less apart, but they're doing it so that particular neighborhoods closest one is in 'their' city. It's a tight packed area, so you cross the street, and suddenly it's technically Lakewood, which means they're spending money in another city. And apparently can't be tolerated.

We need a new law: any interstate corporation who receives government subsisdies has to give all its employees 40 hours per week at $15/hr, minimum.

That would force Wal-Mart to either stop taking subsidies they don't deserve, or pay everyone a living wage.

Ugh, that's despicable. Very glad my town continually fights against the inclusion of a HellMart. We have other One Stop Shopping kind of places, and there are two Hellmarts nearby, about 45 minutes away in either direction. Mostly this just means that one needs a damn good reason to drive to HellMart, and in most cases... we just don't.
I'm with TLA: living wages or no more subsidies.

Wake up people this shit has been going on for the last couple of decades. This country is not a democracy or capitalist anymore and has not been for quite some time.
