Labor history Dec 2, 4 women murdered El Salvador, Wal-Mart pays $40 million to 87,500 Ma workers,

December 2

A Chicago "slugger," paid $50 by labor unions for every scab he "discouraged," described his job in an interview: "Oh, there ain't nothing to it. I gets my fifty, then I goes out and finds the guy they wanna have slugged, then I gives it to im" - 1911

December 2, 1980 - Four U.S. religious women were murdered by soldiers in El Salvador during the reign of terror by right-wing forces in that country.

Court documents filed in Boston say Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has agreed to pay $40 million to 87,500 Massachusetts employees who claimed the retailer denied them rest and meal breaks, manipulated time cards and refused to pay overtime - 2009
