Unlikely Partners

Now, why would Wal-Mart and the Rev Al Sharpton come together for a love-fest?

Civil rights activist the Rev. Al Sharpton and Wal-Mart CEO Lee Scott became unlikely allies Tuesday in their call to revive immigration legislation as they spoke before the largest U.S. Hispanic civil rights organization. "Congress needs to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill now," said Scott, who heads the world's largest retailer.

Why of course! Wal-Mart needs to cut it labor costs even further and what better way than a part-time "guest worker".
