“Critics were quick to voice concerns that Wal-Mart would crush the Chinatown neighborhood’s small, family-owned businesses and offer jobs that do not provide a living wage.” This is always the concern when Wal-Mart announces a new location. They are the commercial arm of the Chinese government in this country and exist only to enrich China and the Walton family. Many of our small towns are dead or dying, commercially, because Wal-Mart opened a store there and drove all of the local merchants out of business. I know this because I am from one of those little towns. Pathetic.
