Possibly the most insulting and degrading remark ever made

UPDATED Walmart Statements Regarding Supreme Court Ruling in Dukes Case

“Clearly today’s ruling in the Dukes case has important legal implications but just as important, it pulls the rug out from under the accusations made against Walmart over the last 10 years. Every female associate and every customer can feel even better about the company as a result of today’s decision.


"Walmart has a long history of providing advancement opportunities for our female associates and over the years we have made tremendous strides in developing women throughout the organization. In fact, we have created specific training and mentoring programs to help prepare women for opportunities at all levels in our company. As a result of our efforts, Walmart is often recognized as a great place for women to work.”


--Gisel Ruiz, Executive Vice President, People, Walmart U.S.


"Every female associate and every customer can feel even better about the company as a result of today’s decision."

This is by far the most insulting and degrading remark ever made by a corporate mouth-piece.  It is further laughable that this person sites "Executive Vice President, People" as their title - as if People were just anther department like Kitchen&Bath or Outdoors.
