Bloomberg: Wal-Mart Raises Hourly Wage to $11 in Wake of Tax Overhaul

Quote:
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is boosting its starting hourly wage to $11 and delivering bonuses to employees, capitalizing on the U.S. tax overhaul to stay competitive in a tightening labor market.

The increase takes effect next month and will cost $300 million on top of annual wage hikes that were already planned, the world’s largest retailer said Thursday. The one-time bonus of up to $1,000 is based on seniority and will amount to an additional $400 million. The company is also expanding its maternity and parental leave policy and adding an adoption benefit...

I don't know if you have kids, but will you give them aid when they are 25 and not doing anything and want to live in your basement, or would you force them out of the house and take care of their selves like you did?
The government isn't a parent.

And a portion of men are veterans. Will you call them lazy?

You don't know their stories.

The left's policy sure try to make it more parental, especially when they are in power.

Veterans? What are you trying to say. I know plenty of veterans that are of working age and work hard. It's sad for those that have mental problems and need help and I believe this is getting better through the VA and is a focus under this administration. However, being a veteran doesn't make one immune from being lazy. Those the work or those that have medical or mental condition aren't lazy, those that don't work and have no medical or mental condition that prohibits them are lazy.

Can we verify this? I have my reservations about this being true, as I have previously posted in this thread. I am ready to believe (ghostbusters humor lol)

Kotter has stated that Wal Mart needs to give pay raises instead of bonuses, they did.

Which way is it gonna be with you libs? You guys need to either shit or get off the pot on this deal IMO

...also, I missed the bonus part. I thought they gave across the board pay raises? You got a link for that? (not to be a Cosmo or anything )

That's your opinion, the release states otherwise. I would doubt Wal-Mart with their slim margins would give a one time bonus and an increase maternity and paternal leave and adoption benefits without these tax savings.

They increased their minimum wage to $11 and are giving a one-time bonus. Those making under $11.00 received a raise.

if you think they are going to hastily slap together sweeping changes on a tax cut that's permanent until a leading party change in Washington
