Walmart workers to see pay increases
GREENSBORO, N.C. — Walmart workers here and across the nation will see heftier paychecks, according to the Greensboro News & Record.
Walmart gave more than 1.2 million of its associates — including more than 3,600 in Greensboro — a raise in their paychecks on Thursday. This is part of Walmart’s two-year, $2.7 billion investment in higher pay, better training and educational opportunities for its employees.
The raises affect Walmart and Sam’s Club associates. All associates hired before Jan. 1 now will be paid at least $10 per hour, the company said in a news release. Entry-level associates hired after Jan. 1 will continue to start at $9 per hour, but their salaries will increase to at least $10 per hour after completing Walmart’s new retail skills and training program.
Associates already earning more than $10 per hour will see an annual pay increase starting this month instead of on their anniversary dates.
