Wal-Mart Karma

I just love the saying "what goes around comes around." You all know it right!?! It's a karma thing. And today, the largest class-action lawsuit in our history got the green light from the federal appeals court. Yup. Dukes vs. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. In 2001, Betty Dukes, a Wal-Mart employee, realized she was not being paid the same as her male counterparts. She complained and nothing happened. Then she started doing some research, and found that not only were women employees paid less than men employees, but women were given fewer opportunities for promotion than men. So how is this karma you ask? Well, think of all the family homes Wal-Mart has stolen from us with eminent domain. That wasn't the right thing to do. And cheating women out of fair pay and work opportunities isn't the right thing to do either. So now Wal-Mart will have to face the court and defend it's unethical ways. I tip my hat to you, Ms. Betty Dukes! Thank you for reminding us that women still have a way to go. Thank you for not giving up. Thank you for not being afraid of the big corporation. You are an inspiration. And Wal-Mart...your slogan, "save money, live better" needs to be changed to "steal money, loathsome bias."
