A legal decision against Walmart labor practices.

FOX's Chris Foster reports:

Walmart is found to have illegally punished workers who held protests in May and June of 2013 by a National Labor Relations board judge in New York.

He ordered the company to re-instate those workers and give them back pay. Walmart disagrees with the ruling in a statement saying, the company's actions were legal and justified.

On Wednesday, it announced most hourly employees would be getting raises.
