Buffett acknowledges Wells Fargo’s ‘cardinal sin’

A federal judge has ordered Wells Fargo to pay $97.3 million in damages to mortgage workers in California who weren’t paid enough for their breaks.

The judgment, handed down late Tuesday, comes after the court ruled in January that Wells Fargo (WFC) violated California’s tough labor laws.
