Finally, those fools at Wal-Mart plan to pony up the bread they owe to scorned former employees:
Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world’s largest retailer, said Tuesday it will pay as much as $640 million to settle 63 lawsuits over wage-and-hour violations, ending years of dispute.
The discount retailer, which has more than 1.4 million employees, said the amount it pays will depend on how many claims are submitted by eligible workers and could range from $352 million to $640 million.
It’s about time they settled this nonsense. As the world’s largest retailer, there was no excuse for Wal-Mart to hold out on paying their employees what they were due. Greedy bastards.
