A slave job is a slave job

The latest addition to the Wal-Mart Foe Hyperbole Watch. That particular over-the-top statement comes from the Rev. Michael Pfleger. He doesn't want two new Wal-Marts in Chicago, because the retailer offers "slave" jobs. Here's the whole quotation: "I think we have to get away from the mentality that we're just glad to get a job ... We've got to stop accepting crumbs as if it's the only thing we're meant to eat. A slave job is a slave job." Flashback: This activist is in "a nationwide war" with the Biggest Box. Perhaps the biggest threat to humanity is no longer second hand smoke.
