On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about Wal-Mart as it turns 50. It’s the third-largest publicly traded corporation in the world and the largest private employer with 8,500 stores in 15 countries and 2 million employees. How has it been able to dominate the global retail market? Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org. How has Wal-Mart set the labor standards for other big retailers? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
