Worker wages: Wendy's vs. Wal-Mart vs. Costco
Interesting article, it shows that a company can pay well & still make a very nice profit


One company that hasn't had to deal with such strikes is Costco.

The no-frills warehouse chain pays its hourly workers an average of just over $20 an hour, compared to just under $13 at competitor Wal-Mart.

Costco seems to be investing some of those profits back into its employees.

Cesar Martinez, a 37-year-old fork lift operator, has worked at a Costco in North California for 19 years. He makes $22.82 an hour, gets health benefits and a pension plan. He manages to save, and doesn't worry about hospital bills for his daughter, who suffers from asthma.

"That's the reason why I've been here for so long," he said. "The company gives you a decent wage and treats you with respect and takes care of you. That's why we all give 100%."

22 is pretty darn good. But is that the inflated California wage market? Is it the same across the country?

My ex worked at Walmart and had the opportunity to invest part of his pay in their stocks. Dumb ass didn't.

Dang, I love Costco, wonder if I could get even part time there with stock options.

I hit the wrong button somehow as I was trying to give you green, mathetes.

this is postworthy.

I will give Costco a second look. That is a good wage.

Nice to see you and your avatar around!

Wally World down here in NC pays $7.25/hr to start, and all they do is hire blacks. There are not enough white people there so there's an in balance of discrimination going on but this state has always been democratic. They have always cheated, lied, and stole when they can. and they have a black sheriff in Vance County who for some unknown reason keep getting re-elected by a landslide. Gee, Now you know why that voter ID shit is coming up here. lmao!
