1.2 Million Wal-Mart Workers to Get Pay Raise
Most Wal-Mart employees in the U.S. will get a raise next month as part of the second phase of the company's commitment to higher wages. More than 1.2 million workers at Wal-Mart and Sam's Club will see a pay bump on Feb. 20, in line with the company's promise to bring its minimum hourly wage up to $10 this year. Entry-level workers, however, will still receive $9 an hour until completing an in-house training program. The average full-time hourly wage will become $13.38.
