Fair Compensation 

Uninsurance is a huge problem in the US. Aside from people simply not getting the care they need, it increases the costs of health care for everyone, including those with insurance. Wal-Mart is of course notorious for not taking good care of its workers, underpaying them, not promoting women, and of course their benefits program is a joke. Yes, they offer health insurance, but employees would have to pay premiums approaching 25% of their wages to get it. Which is not even feasible for anyone.

Via Grahmazon, an outline of a Business Week article that says what we all know is true anyway: taking good care of your workers is good for business.

Die Walton, die.
