Bag issue more than money, jobs
I was disappointed to hear about the Los Angeles decision [to ban plastic and paper bags], but just as disappointed to hear our responses, as they mainly dealt with money and jobs. The public doesn’t want to hear these arguments, and they just add fuel to the image of big corporations saying what they have to say to maximize their profits, executive bonuses, etc. That’s why the Los Angeles City Council’s May 23 vote was 13-1.
