Wal-Mart discounts justice. (On the Line).
The nation's largest employer with more than one million U.S. employees, Wal-Mart pays its workers such low wages that health care benefits offered to them are beyond reach.

Wal-Mart is also facing a sex discrimination lawsuit, in addition to several lawsuits for allegedly forcing people to work off the clock.
