Better Paychecks -- Coming to a Walmart Near You

I'm not too up on the agreement between Walmart and Labor about opening a 2nd WalMart store in Chicago but Progress Illinois is reporting that part of the deal is a $8.75/hr. starting salary and then an increase of 40-60 cents after the first year.

Just a thought: will the increase in salary these employees are getting -- will that be credited to the efforts of the UFCW and CFL? You know, something along the lines of 'A buck or more an hour -- Courtesy of the UFCW/CFL'.

Would be nice.
