I guess this is a cause for celebration? At least for those on top, I mean. We'll hardly see any positives come out of this, except for more work for same pay. The Cowen data showed that 92% of Sears' shoppers also shop at Walmart and that there is... read more

Any updates here? Heard anything on Walmart Health and Wellness Layoffs? Potential?
Walmart starting pay is $9 dollars an hour unless states have higher minimum-wage. After 6 months of training then it goes to $10 an hour if you pass. Not sure where the media is getting their information probably from home-office but it’s wrong!
