HOW A HIGHER WAGE STANDARD WOULD IMPACT WALMART WORKERS AND SHOPPERS

Big box retailers are seeking to expand into major metropolitan areas in the United States. Elected officials and policy makers are struggling to understand the impact these retailers would have on their cities. Some cities are considering “living wage” policies that would establish higher minimum wage standards on retailers of a certain size. As the largest retailer and largest employer in the United States, Walmart’s expansion plans have attracted the most attention and focus from policy makers.

The growth of big box retail is a mixed blessing to local communities. There is strong evidence that jobs created by Walmart in metropolitan areas pay less and are less likely to offer benefits than those they replace. Controlling for differences in geographic location, Walmart workers earn an estimated 12.4 percent less than retail workers as a whole, and 14.5 percent less than workers in large retail in general.

I'm still waiting to see what the S Court rules on the class-action suit. I'm guessing that they won't allow it to happen, but it will probably have more to do with the state of the economy then it being too difficult to pay each member or whatever they tell us the law allows for.
