Wal-Mart Violates State Labor Laws . . . 2 Million Times

This is why we don't shop there:

On Tuesday, after a three-month bench trial, a state court judge in Minnesota ruled that in failing to provide rest breaks, Wal-Mart broke state labor laws more than 2 million times. (The ruling is available here.) Judge Robert King, Jr., awarded $6.5 million in compensatory damages to the class, which consists of about 56,000 Wal-Mart employees in Minnesota.

Should have asked for a jury trial - then vor dire it so you can get a lot of the NASCAR people who basically live there. Anyway, now for the appeals, along with two like judgments in other states. . . woooooo
