The old axiom is that just because you can do something does not mean you should. A great deal of occasions States get flushed with their own power since the Constitution states that they keep the powers not delegated to the Federal Government (Amendment X:”The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people”). Bureaucrats who enjoy power take it to mean that they could do anything they want… ignoring another part of the amendment which mentions”the people”. And even if the”people” want something Mywalmart it does not mean that they should get it especially if their desire infringes on the rights of others.
Theoretically that’s the reason why we have a Republican government that is to protect against the ravages of pure Democracy and the mere wants of individuals.
The Maryland Legislature has determined that Walmart is not paying”it is fair share” with respect to health care. The unions, bureaucrats, competing companies and assorted other financial socialists have managed to acquire a law into place which will require the merchant to spend 8% of its payroll on healthcare because they have over 10,000 workers in the state.
Ok, so besides the obvious financial insanity of the approach that informs businesses that they shouldn’t expand, create new jobs and help people escape from under the welfare state it’s also of wonder how a number of these legislators are voting for the bill in exchange for”kickbacks” – legally called”campaign contributions”. Maybe an investigation should be in order?
So what’s Walmart to do? Some have stated that Walmart online schedule should just lay off enough workers to receive them under the 10,000 mark. Presently Walmart has an estimated 17,000 employees in the state. But that wont help. Next legislative session that they will just drop the threshold to a lesser number. And when the”your money is our money” socialists in government had their way they would only pass emergency legislation that would stop Walmart from putting off enough workers to get in under the established level.
