business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Associated Press reports that a class action suit charging that Wal-Mart Stores cheated employees out of overtime pay got underway in Oregon yesterday.

More than 400 employees from 24 of Wal-Mart's 27 Oregon stores are part of the suit, which is the first of dozens such actions to come to trial. Plaintiffs want back pay, which could amount to several million dollars.
