Walmart Watch: Handshake with Sam

Activist website has publicly submitted a proposed contract--published in today's New York Times--asking CEO Lee Scott and company directors to sign onto seven moral, and practical, standards to guide the 21st century Wal-Mart:

1 "Protect human dignity of employees"
2 "Ensure quality and affordable health coverage"
3 "Use market power to improve supplier conditions and wages"
4 "Enable and embrace self-sufficiency" - end dependency on tax subsidies
5 "Buy local first" - support domestic producers
6 "Keep it clean" - demonstrate sound environmental stewardship
7 "Prove worthy of the public trust" - offer transparency with regards to business operations

The site is well-organized with very insightful quotes from Sam Walton which substantiate the Handshake initiatives.
