How Many Workers In the US Earn Less Than $10 An Hour?February 24, 2015 12:58 am
We spotted this stat today –
“Walmart (WMT), America’s biggest employer, announced Thursday that it would raise wages for its employees to $9 an hour in April and $10 by February 2016. It will impact about half a million workers.
But experts say the Walmart raise won’t be much of a game changer for America’s working class.
Fifteen million Americans are still stuck in the low wage range between $7.25 and $10 according to the Economic Policy Institute.”
Fifteen Million? Thats a huge, huge number.
