More Democrat "Economic Development"

Fresh off their expensive pro-union "victories" in Frankfort, Democrats now return with Son of Wal-Mart Bill. This one would prohibit companies with more than 25,000 employees from firing employees without "good cause."

Just like the previous Wal-Mart bill, this is just to get the ball rolling. If they can force union job protection rules on companies with 25,000 employees, next year it will be 5,000 and on down until you can't fire a bad employee for any reason whatsoever.

As Republicans are trying to make Kentucky more competitive in the world that is whizzing past us, these folks are pulling hard in the other direction.
