Walmart’s decision to pull its support from the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is really distressing to me.
It’s organizations like ALEC and other conservative groups who defend Walmart’s right to expand their business in places like Washington, DC while liberals — including Color of Change & its affiliates — picket and protest and try to drive you out of town.
It’s conservatives who ardently defend Walmart workers’ Right to Work.
It’s conservative groups like ALEC who have always stood for your right to decide the the best benefit policies for your workforce. Or how about ALEC’s work in advancing positive tax, transportation, trade and labor policies?
You didn’t seem to mind ALEC’s outspoken opposition to President Obama’s encroaching health care law when it suited you, and this is how you repay them?
Political divides aside, I never thought that a company with such expansive aspirations could be bullied into being so narrow-minded.
