Wal-Mart’s “No Soup For You” Policy

From the CBC News website:

An Oakland, Calif., jury has ordered Wal-Mart to pay $172 million US to thousands of employees who claimed they were illegally denied their lunch breaks.
The jury found that the company violated a 2001 California law that states employers must give a 30-minute, unpaid lunch break to employees who work at least six hours.
Wal-Mart is reported to be facing about 40 workplace lawsuits across the U.S., including the country’s biggest discrimination case filed in San Francisco on behalf of about 1.6 million women.
