Looking to the future, Hatfield said that Sam's Club started looking in the fall at ways to better position the business for the future. The fact that Walmart, which employs a substantial fraction of Americans all by itself, sees good business sense in an hourly wage increase is good evidence that that labor-force-participation number is sticky. These include: financial assistance for full-time employees who are looking to adopt children, 10 weeks of paid maternity leave or six weeks paid paternity leave for full-time hourly employees, and six weeks paid paternity leave for salaried employees.
Fifty-one of the stores will shut permanently while the rest will be transformed into e-commerce warehouses where some of the Sam's Club workers may be rehired.
We don't know what it is those folks are doing with their time.
"I would've been astounded if they hadn't raised wages", said Thomas Kochan, a professor at MIT's Sloan School of Management.
As far back as 2016, the percentage of U.S. households that only pay for Prime membership more than doubled over the previous four years, from 7.1% in 2013 to 16.2% in 2016. And just how much more they want that convenience of online.
Before we dive into whether this was a sound strategic move, it's worth noting that Walmart handled the delivery of this news rather poorly. For example, it is probably beyond the limits of any human's cognition to be familiar with 100,000 different products, and their location within the store.

"That was a meeting we had in the club to inform our associates".
Irondale, AL, was one of them. "The rise of e-commerce is leading to higher wages".
"Talking to a young lady checking out, there's a lot of people in this store and a lot of stores that'll be losing their jobs", says Tom Vesovich of Turtle Creek.
Mnuchin responded saying some companies will invest capital while others will return money to workers.
"You've got workers who have to figure out what to do with their lives, and you have communities that now have large, empty buildings that they will have to figure out what to do with and increasingly, that's tough as retail continues to struggle", Weiland said.
The tax changes will save Walmart $2 billion a year, according to estimates from Making Change at Walmart, a campaign run by the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union.

Retail inflation rises to 5.21 percent in December
The dollar briefly trimmed losses against a basket of currencies after the CPI data, but later slumped to a four-month low. These so-called core retail sales correspond most closely with the consumer spending component of gross domestic product.
Liverpool want to extend Roberto Firmino's contract
The losses include a 6-0 mauling in 1995 and their overall record read 40 goals conceded to just 17 scored. But Liverpool knew this day would come, and I'd like to think they've been working hard to prepare for it.
