On Monday, federal courts ruled that thousands of female Walmart employees can sue the mega-retailer over allegations that men got paid more to work at the company.
Now that the ruling was approved, as many as 1 million women could be involved in the class action suit.
Walmart believes the case "presented issues that go far beyond the parties. This formula is reall a recipe for massive litigation against companies around the country", which is exactly why they're going to the Supreme Court to review it.
We're sure they are! Could you imagine how much money they would have to shell out!?
The women, who are "determined to see this case through to its conclusion", hope to be in court by the end of the year.
