Walmart's N.Y. Lobbying Increased 2375% in 2011...Yeah, You Read that Right

So how bad does Walmart want to be in NYC? 2375% more than they did in 2010.  NYPIRG announced New York's 2011 record-breaking lobbying totals, revealing the world's largest employer, Walmart, spent $2.8 million lobbying in 2011 an increase from $113,432 in 2010.

Pretty nice that Walmart can increase spending like this with a snap of the finger.  Just goes to show you they've got no problem spending money wooing New York's politicians, just a problem spending money in order to make their jobs, good jobs for our communities.  Check out more from the Times Union and check out Making Change at Walmart.
