For years, big companies have been criticized for not paying their employees enough money, raking in billions while paying their workers close to the minimum wage rate. And Wal-Mart has been no exception. Well, starting this week, the largest revenue-earning company in the world is turning over a new leaf. The retail-giant has announced they will be giving pay raises to 72,478 associates in Texas for the pay period starting April 4th, according to a press release issued by KGBTX. With the raises, associates will earn at least $1.75 an hour above both the federal and Texas minimum wage.
