Hopefully all of the women who are participating in class action suit. I'm for those participating in the class action suit. I also hope that the women who aren't participating in the class action suit also start getting respect for the work they do and receive equal pay for those men doing the same work. You work your *** off for Walmart and you'll NEVER get so much as a pat on the back. Have heard this many, many times. Just plain ill treatment of female workers. No raises, no promotions. It stinks, just like Walmart.

It's time Walmart is held accountable for there lack of work ethics. Women have rights too!

Realistically, if they are allowed as a class action, then that lawsuit will fail.

Consider this: the lawsuit claims that Walmart's corporate wide policy is to discriminate against women, pay them less, and keep them out of management. Well, some women who work for Walmart are well-paid managers. So, are those particular women perpetrators or victims? Which side would they be on when it comes to trial? If it's allowed as a class action, the lawyers will have to claim that these well paid female managers are victims of a company policy that discriminates against women. Good luck with that :)

About as many women lawyers that are involved in the suit.

It is the lawyers who make the money, not those in the suit.

I was once a party to a class action lawsuit against a tire manufacturer. I received the grand sum of four dollars and fifteen cents. Who made the big bucks? The lawyers, of course!!!
