Study on Wal-Mart Carries Built-In Bias

August 22, 2004

Is anyone really surprised that UC Berkeley's Labor Center would somehow come to the conclusion that Wal-Mart's "inadequate wages and benefits" create a social burden by forcing its workers to seek taxpayer-funded state aid? ("Study Cites Social Cost of Wal-Mart," Aug. 3).

Always soft on unions, Berkeley's Labor Center would like nothing better than to force Wal-Mart and other nonunion companies to cough up union-style pay and benefits and, like the union representatives it knows so well, will twist logic any way it can to get the general public to see the world its way.
