WASHINGTON — Mayor Vincent C. Gray vetoed legislation on Thursday that would have forced large retailers in the District of Columbia to significantly increase the minimum wage rate in the nation’s capital, handing a victory to Wal-Mart Stores Inc., which had threatened to pull out of three planned stores if the bill became law.
Gray, citing the risk that the city would potentially lose 4,000 jobs, had been under intense pressure from Wal-Mart to veto the legislation, known as the Large Retailer Accountability Act of 2013.
