Request Description

I understand Wal-Mart employs many people, but with the cost of products increasing do the employees see any of that increase, do they get a wage increase based on the company’s profit? (100 word)

 

Is it fair for the driver (plaintiff) to have to travel to the state of the accident? The plaintiff might be injured from the accident and it might be difficult to travel to Oklahoma from Florida. Wouldn't Miguel have minimum contacts with Florida? He did injure a resident of Florida. Shouldn't Florida be able to use its own courts since one of their residents was injured in Oklahoma? How about if Miguel had evidence that the driver from Florida was not injured at all and was lying to be able to win a large personal injury lawsuit? In this case, shouldn't Miguel be able to file a motion to have the case heard in his state of Washington? What do you think? (100 word)


The plaintiff would only sue the defendant in Oklahoma because of the jurisdiction in which the accident occurs.  But what if the accident is very severe and the plaintiff can't go to Oklahoma where the accident happened and want to take it to their home state for their convenience how would the court or states address the matter? (100 word)

 

Does one state have more jurisdictions over the case then the other state? For example, would Oklahoma have more jurisdictions over the case because this is where the accident occurred?  (100 word)

A survey report issued by Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy states that the earnings of Wal-Mart employees are 20% lesser than those of their peers working for other retailers. The wages that these employees get are on average $1,000 short of what a two-person family requires.  Apart from this, less than half of the employees of Wal-Mart are enrolled in its health insurance plan, whereas for other retailers, almost 67% of the employees are enrolled for health insurance plan offered by the organization. The more organic food and fashionable products of the company drive higher profits but hardly have any bearing on company products. (Bloomberg L.P, 2007)
