Wal-Mart discrimination appeal to be heard in Supreme Court

The Supreme Court agreed to hear an appeal of a major discrimination case filed against Wal-Mart Monday where women were underpaid and passed up for promotion.

In the largest workplace class action in the nation's history, the court will decide if Wal-Mart can be sued for sex bias.

According the the LA Times the lawsuit was brought up because women were regularly paid less than men and were passed up for promotion.

The retail giant said the plaintiffs worked in over 3,400 different stores in 170 job classifications undermining the possibility for a class-action suit, the New York Times reported.
