Tennessee Wal-Mart Workers File Class Action

Women who work for Tennessee’s largest private employer filed a court case Tuesday claiming pay discrimination. The federal lawsuit against Wal-Mart follows an unsuccessful case that involved women coast-to-coast. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled against a nationwide class-action lawsuit last year in part because the women didn’t have enough in common to constitute a class. The Tennessee case is the first in an expected wave of smaller, regional suits, brought by civil rights attorneys with Nashville’s Barrett Johnston law firm. Nashville Public Radio has the story.
