Electioneering Hypocrites

Jan 30, 2006

Maryland’s legislators overrode the governor’s veto to pass the so-called Wal-Mart bill. Employers with more than 10,000 employees are supposed to spend 8% of their expenses on health care.

And what huge employer does NOT cover 7,000 of its employees? The state of Maryland!

Contractual workers have grown everywhere in state employment. And these workers get no health care, no sick days, no paid holidays.

Bills like the “Wal-Mart bill” are for show in an election year.
