Sowell On Walmart Wages & Busybodies

Tom Sowell explores the concerns of some that Walmart isn't paying employees enough.
Think about it: What the busybodies are saying is that third parties like themselves -- who are paying nothing to anybody -- should be determining how much somebody else should be paying those who work for them.
His commentary is well worth thinking about.

Sometimes I wonder why it seems so easy for some people to neglect the value of individual liberty. When it comes to government and the economy, why can't we just let people decide for themselves where to work, what business to own, who to work for, what wage to accept, what wage to pay, etc.?
