Press statement from Holly Sklar, CEO of Business for a Fair Minimum Wage, about Walmart's announced wage increases:
"It’s important that our nation’s largest private employer is finally beginning to follow many other companies in raising starting pay. But given that the buying power of the 1968 federal minimum wage is nearly $11 adjusted for inflation, Walmart should be setting higher targets than $9 in April 2015 and $10 in 2016.
