What Goes Around, Comes Around

july 7, 2004

I hope Wal-Mart is learning their lesson that what goes around, comes around. Now it is coming around strong (1.6 million women) who are going to sue the crap out of Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart, the big behemoth (and bully) of a retailer is no quaking in their boots asking for the class action-suit certification to be reviewed. The Bentonville, Ark.-based company faces dozens of lawsuits claiming violations of wage-and-hour laws and discrimination, but analysts think this one in particular could prove costly. I say good, they need a little kick in the pants to get them back to the real world where women actually exist and people need to get more money than minimum wage to make a living. Low prices does not mean low pay, nor does being a big company mean that you can mistreat people.
