“People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.”
Someone needs to carve those words onto a wall in the D.C. Council legislative chamber.
Last week, the Council approved a measure that would require Walmart and other large retailers doing business in the District to pay a “living wage” of $12.50 per hour.
But… uh oh. Hypocrisy alert.
District government pays less than $12.50 per hour.
