|A soon-to-be-closed Dominick's|
Although Moore did vote to allow a Walmart to be built on the South Side. Exactly why such a matter came to the floor of the City Council confounds non-Chicagoans.
Dominick's is unionized, as is Jewel-Osco, the supermarket leader in Chicago. But the growth in the grocery business is with non-union chains such as Walmart.
Also on Emanuel's committee is a present and former union boss with the United Food and Commercial Workers, which represents Jewel-Osco and Dominick's employees. The rest of the group is dominated by other aldermen and representatives from community organizing groups. As with the Obama White House, there are few people with private-sector experience on Rahm's grocery store task force.
Expect little success.
