The Jan. 14 Gazette report noted that the board was not endorsing a specific bill, but was backing the general concept of the payroll tax. At the time, a health care policy analyst for the board said the tax “seemed to make perfect sense to our membership, especially when you account for the fact that you are really talking about only two employers in Maryland, Wal-Mart and Giant. And Giant is effectively subsidizing Wal-Mart.”

That’s funny. What the big thing is..Giant is union..Wal-Mart isn’t.
