Untitled Document Washington, D.C., May 19, 2005 – Today, Maryland Governor Bob Ehrlich will stand with Wal-Mart Stores COO Eduardo Castro-Wright and veto his legislature’s historic bill to compel the retail giant to pay more for its Maryland employees’ health care coverage. Wal-Mart Watch has previously called upon Ehrlich to return Wal-Mart’s campaign donations.

Wal-Mart Watch Executive Director Andrew Grossman issues the following statement:

“I’m saddened, but hardly surprised, that Governor Ehrlich today chose the interests of his massive campaign contributor over the health and welfare of the hardest working Marylanders and their families. The governor’s celebration of corporate welfare is an insult to all working folks and a serious injury to the state’s small business community who aren’t allowed to play on a level playing field.”
