According to the news last night, Wal Mart workers may start at mimimum wage but most of them make about $13 per hour. Considering that it's a job that doesn't require any special skills or education, that's not too bad. When my husband first started his job 35 years ago he made about $15 per hour. Now he makes enough to be in Obama's sights. You have to start somewhere and work your way up. If you want to make more you have to be worth more.
