Wal-Mart to pay $34 million in overtime case

I'm sure the opponents of Wal-Mart will trumpet this news as more evidence of the evil of the retail behemoth.

Some workers were underpaid by Wal-Mart, others were overpaid. Wal-Mart says, as you'll read in this press release, that it was they who discovered the errors and reported the problem to the US Dept. of Labor.

The underpaid get their overdue money back--with interest. Those who got too much can keep the cash.
