Walmart wins one for big business

On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court threw out a class action suit alleging discrimination against women at the world's biggest retailer. It was the largest class action suit in history.

The court was split, 5-4, but the impact remains the same. Aside from anything else, I don't imagine anyone on the Walmart floor is getting rich, but women will continue to make 77 cents on the male dollar. And where Walmart has blazed the trail, others can more easily follow.
