Supreme Court To Hear Appeal On Gender Pay Suit

RENEE MONTAGNE, Host:

NPR's business news starts with gender discrimination and Wal-Mart.

(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)

If it proceeds, Wal-Mart might have to pay billions of dollars. This case could also affect how future discrimination suits are brought against large companies.
