Here's one local hippie's response to this:
"what does one do when America's goverments at all levels have been bought and corrupted by the most powerful companies and people in the country??
Vandelism sets the message " we don't want you here! ". Now whether they like it or not, that is the truth.
Everyone talks about the " 600 " jobs it will create. Create for whom? The non-english speaking hispanics in the area who have no rights to complain about the way they are treated to the labor dept?
Or maybe they will hire the pooriest of the poor in the area who would rather be working for lower than normal wages, have their health insurance cut in half than not to be employed at all.
Find me one ,just " 1 " employee at any of Wal-marts in the area that have a 4 year degree and aren't in managment that Wal-mart has truly helped the average american worker."
I know some teachers who work every summer at Wal Mart here. No unemployment benefits for them, OR is a right to work state. They go back year after year, worth it to them.
