How to Find Jobs That Pay More Than Walmart Jobs
The world’s largest retailer is now offering to pay the wages of Walmart jobs to employees who take online applications for work at its warehouses and distribution centers, according to a report from the Associated Press.
The AP first reported the news.
“We are offering a wage to employees on all applications,” a Walmart spokesperson told the AP.
“It includes hourly, salary and commission rates, depending on the job.”
Walmart did not respond to a request for comment.
The company’s announcement comes after years of protests by Walmart workers over the company’s treatment of its workers.
Walmart’s website is littered with anti-union messages.
In 2014, Walmart workers in Texas staged a hunger strike, which drew national attention.
Walmart employees in Ohio also held a protest in November, after an employee told the company that she would leave the company if she didn’t receive a raise.
Walmart workers have also been demanding a living wage for years.
The Associated Press’ Nate Blevins first reported that Walmart would pay workers on online applications up to $9 an hour.
