Walmart announces it will be raising its minimum wage

One door closes, while another door opens. Today, Walmart announced that it will be increasing its minimum wage. Employees will now start at $11 hourly. The company will also be giving out one time $1,000 bonuses to employees based on length of service they have had with the company.

However, bad news for Sam's Club shoppers, especially those in the Moorhead community. Today, the Moorhead Sam's Club announced that they will be closing their doors at the end of January. This leaves over 150 employees without jobs. The company is closing multiple stores throughout the country.
