« War and Peace | Main | Way to go Javon! WalMart suffers another defeat (hopefully) »

August 04, 2005


The Rockwood Fred Meyers sat idle for quite some time too.

WalMart is non-union. Is that the primary problem?

Yes, Bailie, it is, considering that the average hourly wage for sales associates at WalMart is something like $8.75.

Where did you get your data?

Walmart wages

Walmart wages are competitive with others in the retail industry.

At Wal Mart, the majority of hourly associate positions are full-time.

The national average for regular hourly Walmart wages is nearly twice the federal minimum wage, and higher in urban areas.

In addition to competitive Walmart wages, the total compensation package includes much more. Associates are eligible for performance based bonuses and Wal-Mart also contributes to the employee profit sharing/401(k) plan. They also receive merchandise discounts, company-paid life insurance, and vacation pay.

Add opportunity for advancement to competitive Walmart wages, too. Seventy-six percent of store management team started in hourly positions.
