Montana Mulls Wal-Mart Tax

Montana, which has no sales tax, wants Wal-Mart, Target, and Costco to pay a tax to offset the state's welfare costs related to the big-boxes' poor labor practices.

"The proposed levy -- in a sparsely populated state with no sales tax -- would apply to stores whose part-time employees make up more than a quarter of the workforce and whose full-time workers earn annual compensation of less than $22,000...Foes of the legislation say it discriminates against high-volume merchants."
