Puzzle me this: Why is it that the same people who bitch about workers sense of entitlement (you know, workers wanting decent treatment and wages) themselves feel entitled to free plastic bags? (It's true)

I think its a marvelous success so far: Toronto's new 5 cent plastic bag law has reduced the use of plastic shopping bags by something like 75%.

It's not that they feel entitled to free plastic bags, it's that private businesses have a right to charge what they want for things, down to & including 'nothing.' Some of the cheaper grocery stores have charged a nickle for bags for years to keep down costs, but not because a coercive government ordered them to do so.
