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.”
