John Edwards supports sweatshops

OK, not exactly, but close enough. From the Georgia Public Policy Foundation, via Neal Boortz:
Former Sen. John Edwards recently promoted his new book at the Manchester, N.H., Barnes & Noble, in front of the local Wal-Mart. Edwards campaigns against Wal-Mart, saying it pays its workers too little. The Barnes & Noble where Edwards will hawk his book pays $7 an hour to start. The Wal-Mart next door pays $7.50 an hour.

For those of you on the left, $7.50/hour is more than $7/hour. What sayeth thou, Breck Girl? Maybe he's still torqued that Wal-Mart wouldn't let him cut to the front of the campers to get his Playstation 3.
