West side Wal Mart: jobs or no jobs?

I hear the constant refrain from the left about jobs and why they aren’t being created. Now, Wal Mart is looking to open a supercenter on the West Side (right down Coors from my house, I might add). It is going to be a controversial battle as 500 people have already signed up to comment at a public meeting on the proposed store. Ironically, the average Wal Mart supercenter creates 500 jobs.

Mayor Berry and Gov. Martinez are trying to create the conditions to make economic growth and jobs possible. Will the NIMBY crowd and the Wal Mart haters stop jobs from being created? Will Sam Bregman be out in front defending Wal Mart’s right to build a store in Albuquerque?
