Labor Day Message from Wal-Mart

This Labor Day, we are pleased that more than 1.3 million Americans choose to work at Wal-Mart.  We have created more than 240,000 jobs over the past three years, where our associates have access to competitive pay, affordable benefits and genuine career opportunities.
 
The average full-time hourly wage at Wal-Mart of $10.11; both full and part-time associates can become eligible for health benefits for as little as $11 per month in some areas; and more than three-fourths of our store management team began careers with Wal-Mart as hourly associates.
 
Each week, our associates help to welcome more than 127 million customers through our doors, where – according to one independently-certified study – they’re saving an average of $2,300 per household, per year.
 
For all of these reasons, Wal-Mart is good for America’s communities and for America’s working families.  Have a safe and happy Labor Day.
