Activists’ demands of Wal-Mart in D.C.

by Walter Olson on May 3, 2011

Washington Business Journal brings word of the list of demands by a “community group” to drop its opposition to the opening of Wal-Mart stores in Washington, D.C. Given such a welcoming attitude, isn’t it strange that so many major retailers have opened stores in suburban Maryland and Virginia, but not in the District?

While most of the demands are ludicrous, I particularly like this one :

“Not ask job applicants about previous criminal convictions.”

I wonder if D.C. consumers would mind if they employed convicted child molesters in the toy department?
