Walmart Execs: This is the Best Economy for Our Customers in Decades

Walmart will raise the minimum wage for its US employees to $11 an hour by February, pay $1,000 bonuses, and expand maternity leave, moves affecting more than a million workers that were made possible by the tax cuts approved last month

Walmart executives believe that the economy is the best for their customers in decades, according to an analyst who spoke with Bloomberg News’ Joe Weisenthal.

Walmart is based in Bentonville, Ark., where 62.9 percent of voters were cast in favor of President Donald Trump in 2016. In July, Walmart was forced to pull an anti-Trump t-shirt from its shelves after customers threatened a boycott and expressed outrage.
