Wal-Mart all set to withdraw its extra pay scheme for SundaysDecember 9th, 2010 - 8:26 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
New York, Dec 9 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Wal-Mart has some bad news for their new hires. As they are planning to stop paying their new hires the extra $1 per hour for Sunday shifts. However the Wal-Mart personnel can breathe easy for a while, because Wal-Mart officials are planning to implement this scheme from January 2011.
The retail outlets that are going to be affected because of this new policy include all the Wal-Mart stores and the Sam’s Club outlets. The distribution center workers can breathe a sigh of relief, as this new policy would not have any bearing on their wages whatsoever. However apart from them, a lot of people are going to be affected as Wal-Mart boasts of around 1.4 million US employees and around 2.1 million personnel in their international stores.
This policy is going to affect only those people who are going to be hired after January 2011, according to the spokesperson Greg Rossiter. It sure would be some welcome news to the present work personnel who are already working with Wal-Mart. And the workers at the Rhode Island and the Massachusetts stores are also not going to be affected at all because of their state laws which already stipulate that Sunday hourly wage should be 1.5 times of the normal wages.
