Possibly good news for Chicago: according to the BBC the city of Chicago will implement a $9.25 minimum wage. Of course, WAl-Mart argues that the rise will have a detrimental effect on inner-city neighborhoods in need of development. They obviously know their stuff. The cornerstone 'of this great country' ® is a strong work ethic, even if it means you'd be better off not working. Aside from grossly racist cops, the most perverse thing in Iowa City is that there is almost no option but to shop at wal-mart. If only "Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price" weren't such a horrendous waste of time, I'd be fun to distibute copies to Wal-Mart employees.
