share this story
This week, the US Supreme Court considers Wal-Mart's demand to dismiss a 10-year-old sex discrimination suit brought by more than 1,000,000 women. The employees accused Wal-Mart of passing them over for promotion in favor of men and paying them less than men. If it is allowed to proceed, as lower courts have ruled, the women are seeking billions of dollars in back pay.
