"Wal-Mart attorney Neal Manne said the jury's verdict, reached after nearly three days of deliberations and four months of testimony, would likely be appealed."

Like MicroSoft, WalMart will use its deep pockets to fund appeals, ad nauseam. Also don't forget who gets the bulk of a settlement in a class action. Yep, the lawyers!

Sad, but true!

These lawyers, of course, did not inform the workers that the California Wage Commissioner
[it's in the phone book] would have represented these folks at no charge -- and they would
have prevailed [been there; done that].

In addition, 100% of the award would have gone straight into the pockets of the workers. And
the Wage Commissioner generally investigates and issues the award in under 90 days.

But as parasites on society, these unions and their lawyers must suck the blood of any
available host, so they profiteered at the expense of lower paid workers.

So now you're advocating for government involvment? You suddenly trust the government to do a job without politics entering into the process.

Are you truly that deluded?

BTW. The Wage Commissioner has been addressed with WalMart complaints for years, look at the results. And finally, the Wage Commissioner can only handle one case at at time, not class actions. WalMart and other slime ball employers love that process.

See you're not deluded, you're just dragging a red herring across the thread.
