Supreme Court hears Wal-Mart case
The potentially massive workplace discrimination lawsuit brought by female employees against Wal-Mart Stores reached the Supreme Court yesterday, with early points scored for the defense, according to a CNN.com article.
The Supreme Court is hearing arguments and deciding whether the sex-discrimination case can proceed.
Wal-Mart is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to end the massive sex discrimination lawsuit, in which the women are claiming that the retailer favors men over women in pay and promotions.
The women suing Wal-Mart are pushing for class action because they say the retailer would have no reason to change its practices if they are forced to sue individually.
