Boo hoo hoo. Wah wah wah.

Thus spake Wal-Mart and Target in response to this news.
Chicago's city council has approved a measure that would force major American retailers to pay an increased minimum wage to their employees.

The council backed a starting salary of $9.25 an hour, well above the existing $5.15 minimum despite opposition from retailing giant, Wal-Mart.
Well, OK, to be fair, the response was more like this:
Wal-Mart and chain store Target both said they may no longer build their stores in the city of Chicago.
In other words: "Boo hoo hoo. Wah wah wah. I'm going home and taking my marbles with me and never coming back ever. Wah."
