More Wage Misdeeds from Wal-Mart

Jury Weighs Award in Wal-Mart Labor Case by not paying them for breaks and for forcing them to work off the clock.

Funny, I have the most distinct sense of deja vu. Oh yeah, maybe because they already lost this same case in California and had to pay out $150 million or so.

You'd think they would learn that the "old ways" of squeezing every last cent out of your employees just aren't going to work anymore. We have Wal-Mart's playbook (most of it is in crayon) and they're going to need to do, you know, more to make their margins than further exploit their employees.

And yet their stock is only down a nickel today while CostCo's is down nearly a buck. WTF? Wall Street?
