business is firing everybody or shipping their jobs to china or india. so i don't think that's really the american brand of business. and so they are melting down in that regard obviously and that leads to the question of look, if they're in this bad of shape and they have this many republicans calling for his head, is it possible we get to a point where they say hey you know what? this guy ain't gonna make it. in order to have a conversation that big that epic, who would you have to bring in? >> cenk: all right. apparently we have to bring in epic politics man. look michael there's been no indication, i want to make it clear to the audience, it is not like we've got some secret evidence that all of a sudden they're going to pull the delegates, et cetera. but if it were going to happen, if it got so bad that this meltdown is thermal nuclear is there a way that they could go to a different candidate? >> there is absolutely a way. first, you have to put it in this context of what you alluded to in your introduction there. in a poll "the washington post" did last week, 51% of democrats are e

after 18 suicide attempts then we got regulation in china. in 1911 in the u.s. we had the triangle shirt waist fire that led to deaths and that wound up giving us more regulations. sometimes regulation saves lives. remember that the next time you see the anti-regulatory fever that you see so many other places on television. all right let's bring in teresa hahn the director of a labor rights organization, and they were the ones conducting investigations of working conditions in factories around the globe. teresa, do you have a sense of when walmart said those are too expensive, we can't do it. how true or untrue is that relative to their cost? is it really that would be prohibitively expensive or a regular course of business? >> it's something that walmart absolutely has the financial ability to do and could do it for a relatively small part of their overall finances. it's a matter of political will in walmart and the companies are not willing to put forward to them what is a relatively small amount of money that would ultimately save the lives of hundreds if not thousands of their
