well; statistically speaking; Wal-Mart tends to always have labor law violations under investigation; so the trend would seem to indicate that they will continue to generally push the limits with their workforce.   TheLightWorks 30 months ago

The point of the court's decision is that they felt(unanimously) that Wal-Mart never had a corporate strategy to treat women badly, so it was never a "class" to begin with.It's possible that the action could proceed as a collection of actions against individual stores. This is probably, unfortunately, impractical.Practicality is, unfortunately, a general problem here. Dispensing justice is time consuming. Class action suits are a way to reduce it, creating(hopefully) more overall justice at the expense of many small injustices. The court ruled that in this case, the latter outweighed the former. They also ruled, by the traditional 5-4, that it applied more generally as well. That's a loss not so much for the women of Wal-Mart as for individuals in general: when a corporation commits many small injustices, which are tiny to them but loom large for the individual, the court believes that fixing it does more harm than good. It is, in essence, a license for a corporation to be amoral, allowing the immoral individuals free reign. The wheels of justice grind slow, and in this case, they are stopped altogether.I don't have a good solution for that. I both agree with the Court in general while finding that the plaintiffs have been done an injustice in the specific, which they are too small to have righted. That is a bad thing.   PamPerdue 30 months ago

To treat women worse they have to be treating them badly in the first place. There is no evidence of that.   Directmale 30 months ago

Some people work for a living, others sue for a living. While Walmart is the largest retailer in the world, Americans are the largest litigators in the world. Something for nothing never goes out of fashion.   happytoes 30 months ago

It is interesting that so many employees stood up for WalMart. I have managed and owned retail stores and there are always people who complain about just about anything. They either straightened up or they were gone. They may not have liked the way I ran the stores but there were many who worked for us for years and loved it. It wasn't the job, it was the employee's attitude that made them unhappy.   Directmale 30 months ago
