Wal-mart Must Pay!

Minnesota - Wal-Mart Stores Inc is to pay $54.25 million to settle a class-action lawsuit.

The suit, that includes about 100,000 current and former employees, alleged that the discount store cut workers break time and did not prevent employees from working off the clock.

This is not the first time that the company has been in this sort of trouble. In fact, it is being reported that Wal-mart has faced 76 similar class-action lawsuits in courts across the country. In one case (California) they were ordered to pay $172 million for illegally denying lunch breaks.
