When a Superfresh and a Pathmark closed doors, opportunity opened for Walmart to expand stores for groceries near Atlantic City.

Melissa Mark Viverito was elected as the new speaker of the New York City Council, unanimously.  Melissa has been a champion of workers' rights and has been outspoken on protecting New York City from Walmart.

Right-to-work is a misnomer. If proponents were straight with us, they’d call these transparently vindictive efforts a “Right to Weaken Unions Act” or a “Right to Punish Those Who Oppose Us Measure.” The laws drain money from unions under the guise of creating a more business-friendly environment for states.
