The Unions Strike Out Again

The Maryland law , pushed by the AFL-CIO, requiring Wal-Mart to pay more on health care benefits for its employees, passed with great fanfare earlier this year, is now officially dead. It was struck down by a federal judge who ruled ruled that the law "imposes legally cognizable injury upon Wal-Mart."

Similar legislation fizzled in 26 other states, including here in Washington.

Unions just ain't what they used to be. Where have you gone Jimmy Hoffa?

Meanwhile, Spokane citizens had better pay attention before they pass a "living wage" ordinance aimed at Wal-Mart.
