Guns in the workplace

BY Marianne Wilson

New York City — On June 17, 2011, Texas Governor Rick Perry signed a bill into law that will limit an employer’s right to prohibit guns and ammunition in the workplace. While the law does not necessarily allow employees to carry firearms at work, it does allow employees to store and have access to firearms kept in privately owned vehicles parked on or in employer provided parking areas. Given that 461,724 Texas residents hold a concealed handgun license, this law is likely to have a significant impact on the workplace across a broad swath of industries, including retail.

Guns and other types of weapons are not important or must to carry at work if you want to carry them then first you must have a license to use it as a self defense. http://www.swordsswords.com/Stun-Guns.aspx

Report: Group of grocers may have violated antitrust law

BY Staff Writer

San Francisco — A Bloomberg report on Tuesday said that three major grocery chains may have violated antitrust law by profit-sharing during a strike.

The U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco on Tuesday ruled that Safeway, Supervalu Inc.’s Albertson’s and Kroger Co.’s Ralph’s supermarket chains were not exempt from antitrust scrutiny, as a court last year overturned a lower-court ruling that the agreement, reached during a 2003 conflict with the companies’ unions, didn’t violate antitrust law.

“More than a ‘quick look’ is required to ascertain its impact on competition,” according to Tuesday’s ruling.

The grocery retailers had argued that the agreement, which called for sharing profits if any of the three were singled out for a strike, wasn’t anticompetitive because it lowered prices for consumers by reducing labor costs. The state of California sued the trio in 2004, saying the mutual strike assistance agreement violated federal antitrust laws and led to higher prices.
