Where does it say that taxpayers should be doing (i.e. paying for) union organizing. Apparently, in Chicago, that's a given. Organized labor is said to have indicated that they might withdraw their long-standing opposition to job-producing Wal-Mart stores in Chicago if the retailer would agree to certain wage and work rule demands.
Here's the story.
[Ald. Anthony[ Beale  said union leaders have indicated during private negotiations that they would not oppose Wal-Mart if the company agreed to pay workers at least $11.03 per hour and build the stores using all union labor.
Give Mayor Richard M. Daley credit for doing what is right by calling for approval of the store in a South Side neighborhood that badly needs the jobs, and whose alderman Ald. Howard Brookins Jr., (21) is fighting for it.
