WHEN $10 BILLION PROFITS DON’T SUFFICE

1

Hey! Here’s a shocker:

PHILADELPHIA, Oct 13 (Reuters) – A Pennsylvania jury said on Friday that Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world’s largest retailer, must pay $78.47 million in damages to current and former Pennsylvania employees for forcing them to work “off the clock” or during rest breaks.

Wake Up Wal-Mart commented on the decision:

“We are pleased, today, that Wal-Mart’s employees, who were needlessly exploited in Pennsylvania, won justice. But, the real question is how many fines, guilty verdicts, and jury awards will it take for Wal-Mart to finally wake up and realize that it’s time to change into a more responsible employer. 

With 57 similar lawsuits, in 40 states, Wal-Mart must immediately end its exploitative business practices. This jury award confirms that the American people will not tolerate corporate irresponsibility and are demanding, both through the courts and our lawmakers, that Wal-Mart become a better employer that treats its 1.39 million workers with dignity, respect, and fairness.”

I quit shopping at Wal-Mart long ago and I will never shop there again.

    Wally World is merely a shadow of its old self since Sam Walton passed away. I doubt he would even recognize it now. Sooner or later you can look for this corporate giant to collapse under its own weight.
