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.
