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