Daley: Unions Must 'Come to Grips' with South Side Wal-Mart
Daley spoke at a press conference Wednesday alongside representatives of the company.
He says the company has "responded" to union criticisms that it doesn't provide adequate wages and benefits.
DALEY: When they hire, you know, a couple of thousand people - you know, these are beginning jobs. People want to just start some place.
Daley says he doesn't understand why unions oppose a Wal-Mart super-store in the Chatham neighborhood - but don't seem to care when the company builds in the suburbs.
The Wal-Mart at 83rd and Stewart streets would be Chicago's second.
But the proposal is caught up in city council.
