retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Connecticut Democrats are pushing for what they are calling a Fair Share Health Care bill that would force retailers in the state with more than five thousand employees to pay at least $2.50 per worker per hour in health insurance benefits. House Democratic Majority Leader Christopher Donovan has been quoted as saying that the bill is necessary because Connecticut is subsidizing the richest company in the world.

Supporters of the bill say that only Wal-Mart and Stop & Shop would be affected by the legislation, which is opposed by many of the state’s Republicans.
