Another Report about Retail, and a Bit about Wages

Are shopping centers a drain on city budgets? An Oct 6 report about retail in Ohio gives a guarded "yes" answer. They take more services and don't pay enough in taxes to cover the expense.

Also, I came across an article by Dorothy Day about the GM strike in the 1930s. Read the part about wages, and know, even the great car factory jobs were once poverty-wage jobs.
