    That's what the article said; $10 an hour. I don't know where you're getting $12 from.

    I assume Walmart gave into public pressure.

    But anyone that thinks raising labor costs significantly with zero increase in productivity will NOT mean less jobs simply has no idea what they are talking about.

    I'm not making anything up: it's all fact. Go back and read the article dude.

    the article does not cover my beliefs on the matter... your assumptions, however, do.

    You're post makes no sense in the context of organizing or giving raises. In the walmart case, the company is making money hand over fist, so now they have to share it. This will only increase their volume. Productivity in a retail market is only based on volume of business. So, people are not going to leave walmart at all, more people just going to shop more.
