Some key movement on wages came this week, as the Congressional Budget Office released a report this week projecting 500,000 lost jobs if the $10.10 minimum wage goes through, even as Walmart signaled a possible willingness to back the measure.
Walmart has announced that customers will now be restricted to purchasing only three boxes of ammunition per person, per day. A spokesman cited a shortage as the reason for the restrictions, not political pressure.
Walmart spokesman David Tovar told Bloomberg that the company thought that their customers might actually have more to spend at the store if wages went up: “That’s something we’re looking at,” he said, adding that they have not yet decided.
"Our wages are determined on a market by market basis and we continually look at them in order to remain competitive," said David Tovar, a Wal-Mart spokesman.
