"Wal-Mart's workers are getting sicker than the national population with preventable diseases such as obesity. More than half of Wal-Mart's workers are not covered by its health insurance plans, meaning many do not have access to necessary preventative care and doctors' visits. Our workers are getting sicker than the national population, particularly with obesity-related diseases".

Source: 2005 Internal Memo by M. Susan Chambers, Wal-Mart's executive vice president for benefits, to the Walmart board of directors.

Walmart is the richest, most successful retail company in the world, and the Walton family that owns it is the richest family in America.
