BROOKLYN - A recent Quinnipiac University poll shows that two out of three New York City residents support the building of a Walmart in the city.

Residents in East New York admit that a Walmart would create jobs, but it would also destroy local businesses and the jobs they create.

Councilman Charles Barron (D-Brooklyn) says that a Walmart would not provide its workers with a living wage and while it may undercut prices in the beginning, prices would likely rise once all of the competition is eliminated.
