The firm likewise claimed it would introduce much more charitable paid family members leave plans, as well as present a fostering advantage.

Walmart credit scores the Republican tax plan for its decision to hike incomes as well as use rewards. "We are early in the stages of evaluating the possibilities tax obligation reform produces for us to purchase our clients and also affiliates and to even more reinforce our service, every one of which should benefit our investors," Walmart Chief Executive Officer and also president Doug McMillon stated in a statement, which cited reduced rates for clients and also far better incomes as among the company's goals.

    The minute they’re out of the spotlight, they will pull the rug out from under their employees. Cuckservatism never fails to screw the working class.

      2 million americans will receive bonuses thanks to the tax cuts but don’t let that stop you from spreading lies and propaganda.

    They will continue to use more seasonal/temp or partime employees as well, anything to avoid fulltime employment and benefits. DON’T BE FOOLED

    Wal Mart has high turnover, so most of those employees won’t see those raises.

    FYI, I was an overnight worker for Wal-Mart. In the last two years they have started doing away the overnight position. They took the $1 pay increase away from us when they moved us to days. That’s on top of them removing a Sunday premium, where if you worked Sunday you got an extra dollar per hour. When adjusted for inflation, I am making less for Walmart than I was at the beginning of 2016. They also laid off a massive amount of managerial jobs/positions across the company. All they are doing is moving around the numbers, and saying it is because of the tax bill.

      Aesithair Runekafi after two years of employment anyone should be able to get hired for $16, and if you can’t, it’s your fault and you need to improve your value in the job market. There’s no blame to be put on any employer…

    • Posted by Flash, at Reply

      dan thrash it’s unfortunately not that simple depending on where you live. If you live in a town in ruel statehood, find a job that pays 16 an hour is not always guaranteed. The job market is just not as simple as you put it. I live in a city and a lot of minimum wage jobs here pay less than 10 an hour, even if workers werer to go to a major employer like Nationwide Insurance or Chase Bank, their wages are at 14 an hour or less from what I’ve heard from people I know that work at both companies. I wish what you were saying was true but unfortunately it’s not and the fault for not attracting new employers with a decent wage is not the employee applicants in any way.

    • Posted by Win or Lose I continue being King, at Reply

      dan thrash Yes you’re right millions and millions of minimum wage workers shoud just open a business, and they’re become instant wealthy. They sure will compete aganist the elite corporations like Amazon, Walmart, McDonald’s etc /s. So what is it, you complain when people complain about their wages and when corporations import illegals and pay them less than minimum wage, you complain about the illegals. Yes people had businesses untill Walmart ran them out of town with their cheap made crap from china. Have fun with your NSA spyed slow throttle internet and paying higher taxes than the Trillionaire Waltsons.

      $1 an hour… That’s $40 a week, $2080 a year. Considering they employ a million people, that’s quite a big giveaway.

      you’re forgetting taxes & living expenses.

      & compared to the billions walmart gross yearly, on top of the tax breaks (also worth billions), that dollar added is non existent.

      they also cut a lot of employees so they can still make as big a profit as they can.

    • Posted by Alex Bryant, at Reply

      Bayou Goop – It’s not a dollar, it’s $2 billion.

      JoeKickass324 Wow I guess tyt morons really have a hard time grasping reality if they don’t realize walmart just agreed to a 10% salary increment.

    Wow I whole $1 , damn all those Walmart employees will be rich now.

    • Posted by marklolwins, at Reply

      It was actually $2, from $9 to $11. TYT caught lying again.

    Every person reporting on companies that are increasing minimum wages and offering better benefits have failed to notice that this is for Full-time employees. They don’t hire full-time. They keep a person’s hours just below full-time status so they don’t have to give you benefits. Now, even though they are going to pay higher wages, they’re just going to cut hours. You’ll see.

      hhairball9 TYT Should Tell you Amazon Is Reason Retailers r Closing and other Things It Has Nothing to With Tax Reform. I’M A INDEPENDENT and TYT Lies about About Tax Bill Trumps Tax Bill Cuts Taxes For Every Rate and Top Personal Rate Goes from 39.6 Percent to 37 Percent and Trumps Has Child Care Tax Credit increased to Over 2,000 For Poor to Lower Middle Income to Middle Class People. So to give No Credit To Trump when Walmart Said It’s Trumps Tax Bill not Bernie Sanders WTF .

    $10-$11 an hour is roughly the minimum wage in the UK but you rarely see it being brought up as an issue over here. Maybe it’s because we have more in the way of safety nets to help those on low income and because people don’t need to find hundreds of pounds each month for health insurance.

  9. Posted by Wolf, at Reply

    It all adds up:

    – Sam’s Club laid off approx 11,025 employees today. If they are full-time employees making $11/ hour this = $252m

    – Walmart to give an average bonus of a $190 to each of their 1.4m US employees. This equates to $266m

    Basically the layoffs pay for the Bonuses

      How much do they make in profit and how much do they pay their execs?

    • Posted by ssuuppeerrbbooyy, at Reply

      Meh, that actually makes sense. If a company can stay as profitable with fewer people – whats the problem there?

      I think the larger problem is that the tax code and various fees will make it that walmart saves 2, you pay 2 more, and you get one in the form of a raise.

      Buy a pumice stone for $1.50 from any grocery store. It won’t damage porcelain and works great.

    There’s a bigger catch than you think. Most of Wal-Mart’s workers are part-time so no baby leave.

  14. Posted by crystalheart9, at Reply

    They will raise the wages and cut employees so everyone has to do twice as much.

    Walmart’s employee’s are on food stamps and Medicare and they make billions of dollars, a dollar raise ain’t going to do it.

  16. Posted by Green Reaper, at Reply

    Don’t be fooled by the maternity/ paternity leave increase. It’s only for full time employees which WalMart hardly employs.

  17. Posted by grnzmlkr, at Reply

    A wage increase to $11.00 sounds great. Then they will turn around and cut your hours back so you still don’t make any more in the end.

    • Posted by Bob Yo Bob, at Reply

    Key word is, “full time employee” most walmart employees at the stores are hired at part time and worked to the limit of being part time so that they won’t have to pay full time benefits. If you are part time your benefits are non-existent.

  19. Posted by BEvery Affraid, at Reply

    Great but nobody works full time for Walmart

    • Posted by Nate Hoffman, at Reply

      I think it would be a fun if we made a law that said any store that takes food stamps or welfare benefit cards have to have at least 51% full time employees. Not only are the jobs not full time, but the hours float so they can’t get another job to supplement their income.
