Walmart Loses Labor Suit

Yesterday, a jury of its peers found Walmart guilty of forcing workers to toil through rest breaks and slave extra hours without pay, a violation of Pennsylvania labor law.

“With the two verdicts and more than 50 pending cases, “I think it reinforces that this company’s sweatshop mindset is a serious problem, both legally and morally,” said Chris Kofinis, a spokesman for, a union-financed group.”

2 +50 = 52, wow, that’s enough to have more than one pending labor lawsuit in every state.
