Walmart Experiences Racial Discrimination

The supermarket chain Walmart has agreed to pay a sum of $440,000 to a section of its employees who had previously reported that they were subject to discrimination and rude comments by a co-worker.

This decision was announced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. It is a settlement that has been recovered from the firm in lieu of ill-treat.

Walmart was sued by EEOC in the year 2009. They were of the allegation that the workers were being subjected to harassment by co-workers. There was a dire need to bring these acts of brutality to a timely end.

As many as nine workers of the organization have agreed that they have been subjected to this sort of ill-treatment, most of them being Hispanic. According to the officials of the EEOC, there was no immediate action taken by the authorities of the firm after this report. This is the reason the organization had to resort to such a strong method to bring these acts to an end.

There are acts of social discrimination taking part in every section of the world. The need of the hour is to bring about a radical change that can end this sort of discrepancies.
