15,000 people…

… that’s how many applied for the 400 jobs available with the new Wal Mart that opened in Chicago. 15 thousand people! Anyone that voted to require higher wages paid by employers (and therefore reduce the number of people hired) should be shot. Luckily for the people of Chicago, the Aldermen couldn’t override Daley’s veto on the big box store payment bill. There’s going to be a lot of people saving a lot of money in Chicago, you can be sure that this won’t be the only store in Chicago either. It seems to me that if 15000 people are applying, there needs to be more low skill job opportunities in Chicago, something that the Unions and politicians are dead set against. Jobs are much more important there than “protections” from those awful capitalists. Things are going to work out just fine there, and Wal mart will do very, very well…
