Six Years Later, Walmart Still Hasn't Paid A $7,000 Fine For Black Friday Worker's De

Six Years Later, Walmart Still Hasn't Paid A $7,000 Fine For Black Friday Worker's Death

Quote:
This coming Black Friday will mark six years since a worker died beneath a throng of shoppers at a Walmart on Long Island. Although federal regulators faulted the retail giant in the tragedy, Walmart still hasn’t been compelled to pay the modest $7,000 fine that was levied against it.

The case, Department of Labor v. Walmart Stores, has not moved forward since HuffPost reported on it a year ago -- on appeal with a federal review commission that handles workplace safety fines. As of this writing, the commission lists the status of the case as “pending review.”

The case was first referred to the commission three and a half years ago. A spokeswoman for the commission said it does not comment on the timeline for pending cases.
If we had open market competition in our economic system and actually REGULATED corporations, this would not happen. This abuse of a worker and toward the family would not have happened at all.

Six years. Fascism at its finest.

Can't argue with this logic. I wouldn't even know where to begin, so I won't.
Thanks from Tony

You can't wrap your head around open market and regulations? It's the same as serving life in prison but being able to go to the mall at will.
Thanks from Tony and Guille

the last statement in you cut and paste says the case is STILL PENDING?

why would Walmart pay a fine in a case that has not been settled. the Commission has not ruled in the case.. see my bold.
Thanks from Tony
