Read How Wal-Mart Treats Women Employees

Read this pdf file. Yes, I know it's from Wal-Mart Watch but the information is based on facts obtained from the "Dukes vs Wal-Mart" class action lawsuit. If that report isn't enough you can read testimony from the experts here (pdf file).

Wal-Mart employees fewer women as supervisors and managers

At Wal-Mart women are paid less than men (see table on pg 8)

It takes longer for women to be promoted at Wal-Mart

Conclusions (mine): Wal-Mart uses illegal sex-discrimination policies in its employment practices
