Did Fed Ex Get a Deal?

It turns out that Fed Ex will pay a sum of less than 5 million dollars to settle allegations of pervasive employment discrimination. The settlement was announced by the Department of Labor and touted as a victory. But is it really? Seriously?

The DOL investigation surfaced allegations impacting several thousand employees. For a mulit-billion dollar company this seems like a small fee to pay where there may have been thousands of job applicants who were not given a fair opportunity.

Now it is Congress’ turn to ask some hard questions about what happened here.
