It's a lot more than "just" $10, you're minimizing the broad changes Walmart is making to their payscale and in other facets. As an industry leader, what Walmart is doing may also influence other retailers and may help push wages and benefits higher for folks working in other companies. Here's a small primer on what Walmart is rolling out over the course of between now and February of next year.

Quote:
— Start raising entry level wages to at least $9 an hour in April and to at least $10 an hour by February of next year. That includes the less than 6,000 workers who make the federal minimum wage. Sam’s Club locations will offer a starting hourly wage of at least $9.50 or higher in all markets, and at least $10.50 by next year.

— Raise the floor and ceiling of its pay range for each position in most stores. For example, the pay range for cashiers is $7.65 to $16. The new range will be $9.00 to $17.55.

—Raise the starting wage for some department managers to at least $13 an hour by this summer and at least $15 an hour by early next year.

— Give newly hired workers a $9 per hour training wage and when they successfully complete the six-month training program, raise it to $10 an hour. Those workers can pursue one of three career paths: hourly supervisor, a specialty path like working in a bakery or deli or expand their skills in their current role.

— Give hourly workers hands-on training in areas including teamwork, merchandising, retail fundamentals and communications. Store leaders like hourly supervisors will get refresher training on people leadership skills so that they can help workers grow and advance.

— Roll out a program that offers some workers fixed schedules so they can be able to choose the same hours each week. The program is being tested in Wichita, Kansas.

— Team up with its nonprofit, Walmart Foundation, to invest a total of $100 million spread over the next five years to support programs that help advance careers for entry level workers in the industry.

If I were the Waltons and was as rich as they are I wouldn't mind giving the rest back to give the people who helped make me this wealthy a piece of the pie. But hey, That's me.

I would presume you fit that category?

That's the best you cab n offer. What you would do with money you don't have which someone else earned? True progressive leftism.

The Waltons, the Lorhs, and all their investors did the work to earn what they currently have. Just as you now do yourself. They give a lot of it away. Do you give yours away?
Some of it would surprise you.

Mikeyy won't be satisfied unless the Waltons give everything away and impoverish themselves.

That would be interesting if they had to clean the toilets at a walmart and live off those wages.

I found as far left a website as possible to link the story.

and they can so use a change in attitude. now how about hiring people to do those other two jobs every employee does along with their regular shift that day, and giving some seniority to older and reliable employees.
