This decision is a big deal for a few reasons. Read our article here: http://sistersofresistance.wordpress.com/2011/06/28/cloaking-gender-women-wal-mart-and-the-supreme-court/
wal mart is evil
the county store has the government in its back pocket
These big class action suits are staged by BIG LAW FIRMS, who also grease politicians pockets to make the trough bigger for their slobbering mouths!"Wait till the day you need a lawyer to help you, then you will like them" says the lawyers. The only time you need a lawyer is because some other lawyer is suing you!
Anyone who feels they have been discriminated against can go to the EEOC or Civil Rights under title VII FREE so all that BS saying it's now the little people against the big bad Walmart and that the small cases will not be dealt with are full of it. There are more people in the EEOC as government workers than you can imagine......but that again is another story about government being bloated and overgrown isn't it?
IF EVERYBODY STOP SHOPPING AT WALMART FOR A WHOLE MONTH, THIS ABUSE AGAINST THESE POOR LADIES WILL FINALLY COME TO THE END OF WALMART.
You're right, that would work. Unfortunately the people in this country aren't motivated enough to do that sort of thing.
They mean "its a bad day for the scoundrel lawyers".These vermin are the cause of everything being more expensive. They are also why there are so many rules, warnings, commitees, safety programs and high insurance rates!
If you don't like the way a company handles employees, don't work for them, or don't shop there. In that way, enough dissatisfied people will result in the company going out of business. That is better than wasting the court's time, where all taxpayers are paying for it. Putting a company out of business has its consequences too - like loss of jobs,and loss of the products they offer at the prices they offer them. The only people helped by litigation are the attorneys.
Sorry but it is BIG BUSINESS THAT PROVIDES THE JOBS in this country, not the middle class or the poor.Destroy the hand that feeds us and all will be working for BIG GOVERNMENT at low wages and every one will be equal. Tried in Soviet Union and failed Sure I resent large salaries of CEO'S but that is greed which is prevalent these days.
Yes, and it is also big business that is destroying the middle class and the poor. I don't care if it's big business or small, you do what these people did you should be held accountable, but since our government (the republicans at least) is only interested in big business and the peope who make their millions off the middle and lower class that's never going to happen. And you're right CEO's are the greediest people in the country and need to be taken a few notches down
Hey people, let me remind you: Walmart is representative of who? That's right - Big Business. And, Thomas Scalia and Alito, et al are also representative of who? That's right - Big Business. When are the people who helped build this country - the great middle-class - going to learn that the rich and super-rich; creatures like the Koch brothers who defile the environment and wish to pay coolie wages who are Big Business personified are able to buy some of the freaks on the Supreme Court. The two worst are Scalia and Thomas: both are messianic, evangelical, fideistic, fundy freaks. One is a sex pervert, obsessed with porn and the other is obsessed with food and drink. Neither has a modicum of shame and they should be recalled. They're against unions, poor people, children, and wipe their behinds with the Constitution. If our country goes down the toilet, you can certainly give the Supreme Court most of the blame.Now, do you really want to hear what I think?
