No one can accuse Bill Brady of being shy about his affinity for Walmart, last October the and Illinois' GOP gubernatorial nominee kicked off his Jobs Tour on Chicago's southside where Walmart very much wants to open its second Chicago supercenter. Yet he manages to deliver a speech on Walmart and not mention Walmart. What a politician. From the Chicago Tribune:
Minorities are not, in this state, dependent on government jobs They’re looking for private-sector jobs,” said Brady, a real estate developer with other business interests. “They understand it’s private-sector principles that will bring big-box construction jobs, permanent jobs and affordable quality food to their communities.
I have to laugh at the permanent jobs bit. Has Brady ever looked at the employee turnover of a big-box retailer? Jeff Hess: Have Coffee Will Write.

    maybe he means permanent jobs for the construction workers. It surely isn’t the walmart associates.

    Shalom Mole,

    As a developer, I thinks he’s much more interested in the permanent job for himself and his peers. The construction workers are just an expense that he has to tolerate.
