OK so a wire with a current creates a b field in accordance with the right hand rule. Now moving charge will feel a force (if its moving in the correct direction) while stationary charges will not feel a magnetic force.

What I am curious about is if we move the wire itself, will a stationary charge possibly feel a magnetic force? From the perspective of the wire, the charge is moving, so I assume there would be a magnetic force even though the charge is stationary.
