Walgreens must pay a former cashier $337,820 after a jury found that the drugstore giant discriminated against her based on her age. In April 2007, Isela Quintero, then 55, was fired from her job at an El Paso Walgreens amid allegations that she used store merchandise without paying for it. Quintero said she had intended to pay for the item -- a $1.59 pair of scissors -- but forgot. She contended her termination was actually due to her age, noting that the store managers and loss prevention officer were in their 20s and 30s, as was her replacement. She claimed the action against her was too harsh, alleging that managers had been known to give away items but were never disciplined. The defense argued that every employee who took store merchandise was fired, and that most of the fired employees were under the age of 40.
