1 million women sue Wal-Mart for BILLIONS

But not because they're getting any, that's for sure. Nope, this is an old-fashioned sex discrimination suit - probablly well deserved. Hey, middle America! How do you think they keep the prices so LOW?

Reuters The biggest sexual discrimination case in U.S. history advanced against Wal-Mart Stores Inc. on Tuesday when a top court ruled that more than a million women could join a suit charging bias in pay and promotions.

The plaintiffs estimate they could win billions of dollars in lost pay and damages and that as many as two million women who have worked for Wal-Mart in its U.S. stores since 1998 could join a class-action lawsuit.
