Unions Hate Cheap Food; Love Cheap Politicians.
Nick Gillespie of Reason.TV and Steven Malanga of City Journal can deconstruct a specious argument better than anyone, and they do just that in the above video. They easily expose the ridiculousness of the statements of New York politicians and union thugs who are doing their best to "save" the city of New York from the evil Walmart. Surely they're aware that there will be plenty of jobs created by a new Walmart (and the food bills of New York residents will decline), but the fortunate New York residents filling those new jobs will not be paying union dues, so there will be less money for union officials to fund the campaigns of their favorite politicians. It really is that simple.
