Bloomberg: Wal-Mart Raises Hourly Wage to $11 in Wake of Tax Overhaul

Quote:
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is boosting its starting hourly wage to $11 and delivering bonuses to employees, capitalizing on the U.S. tax overhaul to stay competitive in a tightening labor market.

The increase takes effect next month and will cost $300 million on top of annual wage hikes that were already planned, the world’s largest retailer said Thursday. The one-time bonus of up to $1,000 is based on seniority and will amount to an additional $400 million. The company is also expanding its maternity and parental leave policy and adding an adoption benefit...

$11/hr. is pretty damn good money in a lot of rural areas. It is here where I live. I make more than that, but I could easily live on that here with our cost of living.

You could live on less than 20,000 a year when taking into affect taxes?

As I said in the other thread you referring to, Walmart, although at smaller percentage also has bargaining employees and have a contract.

You must also think this is free:

^^Proof that you don't understand how business works.

A business has a good year and they pay more bonus and dividends. If you get either of those you should be happy. It does NOT guarantee that the next fiscal year will be as lucrative so it's pretty difficult to promise the same results. Doesn't work that way in the real world.

Wouldn't a permanent tax cut extend into future fiscal years?

So what specific government cuts would you advise, ones that realistically could be passed by Congress...in order to make the tax cuts revenue neutral. The key being, realistically.

If not, then do you support tax cuts that increase the deficit and debt? That doesn't strike me as "fiscally" responsible or conservative....
