    The company was trying to buy-off only her, so they wouldn't have to pay all of her co-workers as well.

    As I wrote in my "I'm not a lawyer, but" diary I posted about this case just after oral argument:

    The company proceeded to try to pay-off Ms. Symczyk alone, not her similarly-situated co-workers, in what appears to be an attempt to avoid the "extra cost" of a collective action suit. Ms. Symczyk refused to accept her individual pay-off—she wanted her co-workers treated fairly, too.

    Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.
