6.21.11 Bee-otch of the Day: The Supreme Court

Name: The Supreme Court
Age: 222
Occupation: lawmakers of the United States
Last Seen: Washington, DC
Bee-otched For: kissing Walmart's ass


Walmart-1, women-zippo.

It's official: the Supreme Court hates women. The nation's highest court voted Monday to block a massive lawsuit that would have cost the nation's top retailer billions. The class action lawsuit involved 1.6 plaintiffs, and it was the killing point of the lawsuit. The court rejected the suit, claiming that it would wrap too many women with different positions into one lawsuit.

Some of the women in the suit could file their own suits against the retailer, but with way less money.
The suit was filed claiming that most of Walmart's lowest-paid positions are held by women. Plus, women are usually passed on regarding managing positions; most of the company's store managers are men.
As expected, the five justices who voted in favor of Walmart are the conservative justices, including Chief Justice John Roberts who was made Chief during the Bush administration. However, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says that there was enough evidence that Walmart could have lost the suit, stating that "Walmart's delegation of discretion over pay and promotions is a policy uniform throughout all stores."

You know, I hate it when judges will side with Walmart with everything. Remember the case regarding the employee from Battle Creek who sued them because he was fired for using medical marijuana? Tragically, the right-winged Republican judge, Robert Jonker ruled in favor of the retailer because, well, he made a statement that was basically gibberish. But, we all know what he was truly saying: Fuck the working class, all hail Queen Mother Walmart.

Folks, this is another reason why I'll never shop at Walmart. The Walton family's all worth over $20 billion, their CEO makes $30 million and their average worker makes only $14,000. Plus, they've screwed over American jobs by making companies sell for below profit and the fact that they STILL won't sell albums with the Parental Advisory sticker or anything with Howard Stern on it only makes them hypocritical. As much as I hate Grand Rapids, I'm thankful that there's a lot of stores around here so I won't have to go to Walmart at all, period. Although Meijer is now almost as bad as Walmart in many areas, they're still the lesser of all evils.

Thanks, but I believe in equality. People should get promoted for doing a good job, not because they have a penis.
