Stinky Polls

I was reading one of my daily reads, The Capitol Fax Blog (Illinois politics from Springfield) and Rich had mentioned this Sun Times article about a poll of “500 registered voters” who think it’s better to make Wal-Mart and other “big-box” retailers pay out the nose for unskilled labor even if it keeps badly needed jobs out of the area. One of the poll suggestions, that respondents heartily agreed with, was that employees should be guaranteed $10 an hour plus $3 an hour in benefits for 5 hours a week.

I emailed the story to DJ Drummond, telling him that this poll seemed so “rotten you can smell it from Denmark”. He agreed with me and fisks it marvelously here at Stolen Thunder and here at Wizbang! Politics. Go read it.

Rich, thanks for bringing this up. Go read the comments at Captiol Fax Blog on this issue – there are so many Wal-Mart haters out there…
