In a case that could cost Wal-Mart Stores billions of dollars and further hurt its already bruised public image, a federal judge ruled on June 21 that a sex-discrimination lawsuit against the retail behemoth can proceed as a class action. The long-awaited decision means Wal-Mart faces the largest employment-discrimination action ever, covering up to 1.6 million current and former female workers. Wal-Mart says it will appeal the decision and notes that the ruling "has absolutely nothing to do with the merits of the case."

I worked for wal-mart for 12 years the frist five as a cashier than a dept. manager of electronics. after that i was promoted to a support manager, ant time a asst. manager's positions came up i applied. i was even offered a postion with loss provention(security) the store manager said i would'nt like the job even though all the shoplighter's that were caught at this store were by me. then was told maybe i should play the race thing since the new ceo was also blackand this came from the district manager, this may not help anyone but you never know. store was 292 lockhart, tx. 78644 and i was the only black person they had in mangament , there are none at this store now plus there are only 3 black's that work in the store. j. beck 830-875-5382
