In more Wal-Mart news, the big box retailer has officially thrown down the gauntlet on the Living Wage Bill. In a Washington Post op-ed, Wal-Mart's regional general manager, Alex Barron, stated that if Vincent Gray does not veto the bill on Wednesday that forces a higher minimum wage for large retailers, that it would pull out of at least three of D.C.'s six planned stores and possibly put the kibosh on all of them.
