Walmart raises hourly wage in plan to hire more associates

Great news for Oklahoma City residents: the city is now ranked as having the lowest unemployment rate in the country. But, that could spell trouble for retail giants like Walmart.

  Walmart says it is planning to hire 150,000 new associates for stores across the US. Most will be for permanent, full-time positions, but some will be holiday season associates.

Walmart has also increased its pay to attract more employees during the labor shortage. The average hourly wage is now $16.40.
