Turning Wal-Mart into a progressive ally

Any Stern is the best thing in the labor movement: "Ford wasn't created to be a health-care provider; it was created to produce cars. My goal is to get Wal-Mart's leadership out there in traffic and holler, 'We can no longer compete in the global economy when health care is factored into the cost of our products.' If Wal-Mart's CEO, Lee Scott, were to come out and say, 'We need a national health-care system that works for everyone,' then it's a whole new ball game."

American business needs universral healthcare to compete in a global economy. Period.
