Wal-Mart at $11 million
In a record-breaking fine set by the Federal government, Wal-Mart stores were ordered to pay $11 million dollars for their use of illegal janitors.
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has agreed to pay $11 million to settle federal allegations it used illegal immigrants to clean its stores, attorneys in the case said Friday.
The landmark settlement was expected to be announced by federal immigration officials at a news conference Friday morning.
