From Occupy Democrats:
This story is the same across the country. The problem is, Walmart does not create as many jobs as it destroys. A peer-reviewed study by economist David Neumark, who works at the University of California, Irvine, entitled The Effects of Wal-Mart On Local Labor Markets found just that. To be clear, Mr. Neumark is hardly what one would consider a Liberal. In 2009, he wrote an op-ed entitled Delay The Minimum-Wage Hike arguing that the minimum wage should remain low, despite increased wealthy disparity.
