How About A Real Fine?

Walmart to Pay More Than $11.7 Million to Settle EEOC Sex Discrimination Suit which works out to a pretty pathetic 585 minutes of proft for Wal-Mart. Barely even a third of a day's lost profits for a business that routinely discriminates against all manner of people.

Wal-Mart makes $20,000 a minute in profit, each and every minute of each and every day. That equates to $10.3 billion a year.

This $11.7 million fine works out to 585 minutes of lost profit. There are 1440 minutes in a day.

Until Wal-Mart is hit with a fine that actually hurts them, they will continue to discriminate, exploit and otherwise misbehave. There is one thing big stupid evil corporations care about and that is their bottom line. Start to make an impact there and they'll straighten up and fly right damned fast.

Otherwise all of these lawsuits are nothing but pebbles in the way of a juggernaut.
