Jobs or Else!
I asked about their ominous signs an received this answer:
They want a Walmart built on the South Side of Chicago at 83rd and Stewart. It's a confounding social dilemma- how did we get to the point where people take to the street demanding minimum-wage jobs from a union-busting corporation with a history of abysmal human relations?
Is this a legit grassroots effort or are these protesters political pawns? Daley just accepted $700,000 from the Walmart corporation...
...Yet there seems to be community support.
Update: Here's an interview with hip-hop artist Rhymefest who's in the first video I posted. apps.wbez.org/blog/?p=5039
