Retailer Raises Pay: Walmart
A major retailer gives its employees a pay raise. 5-hundred thousand full-time and part-time Walmart and Sams Club employees are getting a pay raise in April that will take them to 9-dollars an hour. That's $1.75 an hour above the current federal minimum wage. By February 1 of next year, their pay will rise to 10-dollars an hour. The company said workers will also have more control over their schedules but declined to give details of those changes.
