Wal-Mart discrimination case

Posted By on Tue, Dec 11, 2007 at 6:34 PM

A 9th U.S. Circuit of Appeals panel splits, but affirms, certification of a class action gender discrimination lawsuit against Wal-Mart.

Says Wal-Mart Watch:

" Wal-Mart has discriminated against its female managers and employees for years.  It is shocking that a company which depends so deeply on women as customers treats its female employees so poorly.  And now the 9th Circuit has once again reaffirmed that the case will move forward as a class action lawsuit.   
Perhaps Wal-Mart's leadership will finally recognize it would benefit by making substantive changes to its business practices; the company needs to fix its employment practices and stop discriminating against its workers for starters."

Wal-Mart will appeal.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
