Wal-Mart To Pay $172 Million To Employees.

A California jury has awarded over 110,000 current and former Wal-Mart employees $172 million dollars for illegally denying them lunch breaks.

The jury found that Wal-Mart violated California state law that guarantees an unpaid half-hour lunch break to workers who work at least 6 hours, and grants then an extra hour’s pay if the break is denied. Wal-Mart says it will appeal the ruling.

Across the country, Wal-Mart is accused of about 40 other workplace violations.
