    "Walmart could pull out of three D.C. stores, including Skyland, over living wage bill." ...and this would be a bad thing?

    Not surprised by Metro survey data.

    If you read the blogosphere, the impression is that Metro is a disaster. But the truth is that Metro is dependable and reliable.

    WALMART EITHER PAYUP OR GET THE FUCK!

    @Ward Citizen: For Skyland, yes this would be a bad thing.

    The city is so dumb. Walmart never wanted to be saddled with skyland or any of the other low rent developments the city pushed on them.

    They'll keep the properties in wealthy Ward 6 and maybe Ward 4, and scuttle the developments that they city council wanted them to make as a compromise.

    Tax revenue will continue to flow to MC, PG and AR Counties and skyland will sit unused.

    But I guess that's what Anacostia wants. They'd rather sit in their own feces than have gentrification.

    As is par for the course, the Democratic morons on the city council are still in the pockets of unions. Guess water is still wet, too.

    The administration should have ensured the Skyland Walmart was the first to be built. Allowing it's completion to be linked to the building of 5 or 6 other Walmarts in DC was a failure of strategic vision.

    Sign the bill. Move the city forward.

    Yes..WalMart pulling out WOULD be a bad thing. The Council should've rejected the living wage bill though.

    @Name, are a rep for Walmart because if so, I'm sure many of have questions we would like answered.

    The lack of a Skyland Mall Walmart project deal is not a failure of strategic vision it is in typical and expected stasis because of eminent domain issues. We are entitled to our own opinions but not our own facts. Too Da Loo.

    WOW YOU GOT CLOWNS ON HERE ACTUALLY BELIEVING WALMART BRINGS GENTRIFICATION! THAT FOLKS IS PURE UNCUT BULL SHIT!

    LIVING WAGE BILL IS GOOD FOR THE RESIDENTS OF THIS CITY.
    FUCK WALMART AND ANY OTHER MONEY GRUBBING CORP THAT DON'T WANT TO PAY IT.
