Public policy professor Robert Reich spoke to a capacity crowd in Santa Rosa Monday about the state of the American economy. Acknowledging a movement in Sonoma County to prevent Wal-Mart’s further expansion in the area, he used the company — the nation’s top employer — as an example of how big companies have outsized power to set poor standards for wages and workplace conditions. "This isn’t about blaming Wal-Mart," he said, "it’s about blaming the system."
