This blog started out as a companion piece to my book, Musings from the Christian Left (excerpts of which can be found in the July 2004 link) and to support a planned radio show. Now, its simply a long term writing project from a Christian Left Libertarian perspective (meaning I often argue for liberty within the (Catholic) Church, rather than liberty because the church takes care of a conservative view of morality.

Wal-Mart's Evil | National Catholic Reporter

Wal-Mart's Evil | National Catholic Reporter by MSW.  MGB: Wal-Mart is no less evil then Target or Starbucks in how their employees are treated.  There is truly a race to the bottom going on and neither party is willing to address it.  We need much higher minimum wages and much more generous tax credits to families payable with wages rather than with annual refunds - which are often filed for by predatory lenders pedaling refund anticipation loans.  This whole structure should be backstopped with a commitment to training anyone who desires it - with pay.  The Church is notably absent in endorsing a vision that will radically improve the conditions the working poor must face.
