Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has reached an $11.7 million settlement with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in a long-running lawsuit accusing the retailer of discriminating against female job candidates at one of its Kentucky distribution centers.

I have to wonder how long it will take employers to realize that women should be paid on an equal basis with men!
