ARE we going to put American out of work.???? How can we kill the goose that lay the golden EGG???.

Wal-Mart to DC: Force us to raise wages? We'll leave

Wal-Mart is butting heads with Washington, D.C., over a city council vote that would require large box retailers to pay employees $12.50 an hour at minimum.

That’s more than the local minimum wage of $8.25 an hour, but no matter. A day after Wal-Mart pushed back, threatening to drop plans to build three stores in the nation's capital and reconsider its commitment to three more, D.C. lawmakers approved the bill. If signed by the mayor, the bill would require retailers with more than $1 billion in U.S. annual sales and stores 75,000 square feet or larger.

From the debate has emerged a question other U.S. cities may have: Will Wal-Mart be able to break into cities, traditionally union strongholds?

With rural and suburban America reaching saturation, Wal-Mart’s push into heavily Democratic cities has been met so far with resistance from community leaders and politicians demanding that the retailer pay its employees more.

"In terms of the major urban centers, their low wages and poor labor practices have been a large barrier," said Ken Jacobs, chair of the University of California Berkeley Center for Labor Research and Education.

Wal-Mart spokesman Steve Restivo said by email that the decision to pull out and suspend projects in the District will be a "difficult decision."

There’s also the concern that Wal-Mart wouldn’t abandon D.C. – but would shrink its new store blueprints to below the 75,000-square-foot threshold. (It would be tough to shrink profits: In the first quarter ending April 30, net sales were $113.4 billion company-wide, and income was $3.78 billion.)

"The fear I have is they might scale back," said Joslyn Williams, president of the Metropolitan Washington Council of the AFL-CIO.

Despite an improving economy, Reverend Graylan Hagler, leader of a social justice-focused think tank of clergy members, said residents in poor neighborhoods were being left on the sidelines.
"There’s a corporate responsibility here, not only of providing jobs but of providing meaningful and dignified jobs,” Hagler said.

Wal-Mart says its average hourly wage for full-time, non-managerial employees in the U.S. is $12.78, and $12.39 in Virginia. "Our wages and benefits meet or exceed those offered by most of our competitors," Restivo said.

But Jacobs, the Berkeley labor professor, says those wages don’t represent workers overall.

"That $12.78 really masks the fact that you have a significant number of part-time workers, who are paid less," he said.

(Restivo said that "most" of Wal-Mart's workforce is full-time, but he declined to provide a percentage.)

In a 2011 paper, Jacobs said Wal-Mart could absorb the cost of a wage increase. He said even passing it along to customers would only have an incremental effect on prices.

This isn’t the first time local lawmakers have targeted Wal-Mart over wages. A similar big-box wage measure in Chicago failed in 2006 after Wal-Mart objected and then-mayor Richard Daley vetoed the legislation. Supporters fear a similar outcome in Washington, D.C., as Mayor Vincent Gray has “serious concerns” about the city council’s bill, his spokesman Pedro Ribeiro said.

Even if Wal-Mart wins this round, Jacobs said the company will have to address its low wages if it wants to break into American cities. "At some point, Wal-Mart is going to have to deal with this issue," he said. "Ultimately, I think if cities go forward with these initiatives, Wal-Mart is going to be forced to bend."

Go walmart!!! This is all just a bunch of dumbocrap fronted pc crap. With obamacare coming there will be even fewer full time jobs coming soon to all the stores and business places.

You cannot legalize morality. It's internal not external. You either have it or you don't.

No one is forced to work for Wal-Mart at any wage, but millions are forced to live on welfare for the lack of jobs this president and the liberals have caused!

Most individual's have no precept how BIG Cesar has gotten into our lives
Do to the current age demographic's of the generation and it 's training --not a clue at all -it's accepted as the norm : Pushing boxes around on a warehouse floor to stand in line too eat or obtain some form of Gov't service. Or just standing in line -waiting.

Completely Inert: Family Life and Independence is now #2 too the Employer >indentured > thru some form of tax or permit to the Gov't in one form or another or a tendril their of. Just too feed it - with little benefit back to the payee. Citizen.

More effort and energy is now spent trying to keep it from being taken than actually making it.

One must be completely out of their minds to do a new business up- start. Impossible : How much they pull off the table before you even see the NET is a terrifying small margin if not flipped.

Pure Socialism is here. In 10 year's their will be no independent skill set's or small business owners.

Simple to show a young working adult: Take the NET of their take home pay ( Actual } cash value / as recorded on the receipt of credit units placed into the electronic coffer. What go's into their pocket.

Divide it by the ACTUAL working HOurs of Labor.

Then compound it with the Hidden Stealth Taxes just on the Retail side or Credit card or singular stamp tax purchases.

Your NET : around 30 % for Black operating cash.

The one and only reason libs hate WalMart is because its a non union shop.

Note: D.C. is Not a State. They have dictated the business model and environment of operation and profit and overhead to the Business Owner.

How many times has the Administration : Removed CEO's or Company President's from their positions?? ??? " General Motor's "

How many Bank or Mortgage decision maker's have been prosecuted after the great mortgage meltdown ?? The Toxic Asset Relief Program's ??

NONE

I was watching fox this am about 6:30 and they were reporting on this and the liberalturd they had on went so far to claim the part timers at walmart were a burden to the welfare system! What an idiotic train of thought with no facts to back it up!

problem is the people they think they're helping by opening up jobs in DC, won't work if you paid them 80k per year. They're lifetime leaches, nothing will ever stop that. Generations deep and it's not going to change in my lifetime.
The people that would fill those jobs would commute from outlieing areas.
Look at Detroit. There are no large stores in Detroit proper anymore. Can't find the labor and the people willing to work, won't drive into the city and take their lives into their own hands just to go to work.

Nobody is being forced to work or shop at Wal-Mart, and if you do not like the way they operate then do not support it.

es1co2bar3,
I am sure you have a great caring heart but your way of thinking is in line with Communist. Stalin called people like you a useful idiot. (No I did not called you that personally, it was a quote from Stalin)

If you don't like Wal-Mart, don't work at Wal-Mart.

If you don't like Wal-Mart, don't shop at Wal-Mart.

People are not forced to work at Wal-Mart.

People are not forced to shop at Wal-Mart.

Period.

Take a pill.

Anything else is slavery!
