Here’s something you don’t see everyday, Walmart telling the truth.
The ingenious website www.walmartnyc.com which claims to promote real New Yorker opinions, is promoting a report from ABC News which covered NYC Public Advocate’s Bill de Blasio’s report that if a Walmart were to open in NYC retail wages would suffer.

We love how the logo above reads, “Helping NYC Save Money and Live Better”, while they source studies that argue they’ll lower retail wages.
Update: The New York Politicker picked up the story also here: http://www.observer.com/2011/politics/wal-mart-website-inadvertently-brags-store-would-lower-wages
