Why are Walmart wages so low? Walmart Careers.
This question has been stuck in the back of my head ever since I was told not to shop at Walmart.
This all started when I worked for a local union, they would advise their members to avoid supporting companies like Walmart.
After doing some in-depth research, Walmart starting wages have risen quite significantly for the past few years.
However, many of their labor-based workers are barely making it. According to the Washington Post, the average hourly pay is $14.26.
If you multiply that by their 34 hours (considered full-time at Walmart), that’s around $25,200.00 per year. Which is well below the poverty line.
Now I am not saying don’t work for Walmart if that’s your only mean of generating an income. But also expand your horizons by seeking other opportunities as well.
Walmart Is Worth Billions By Keeping You Broke
According to CBS News, Jim Walton, Rob Walton, and Alice Walton are all listed as the top 20 billionaires of 2018. They are so wealthy, Walmart has more money than some countries.
The question is, how come their wages are so low? Well, it’s simple…to keep their employees broke, so they will continue to work for them.
The truth is… more money = more opportunity. For example, the people who are making $1,000,000 dollars per year are not working a job.
They are not working for money because money is working for them.
The people who are making $1,000,000 dollars per year have investments and income-producing assets such as properties or businesses.
I was told at a very young age… It’s not how much money you make… It’s how much money you can save.
Well, instead of saving money, I thought about using that money to make more money. Hence, why I invested money and time into Smart Affiliate Hub.
Am I rich? No, I am not rich, but I have choices.
Okay, so back to Walmart…
I believe Walmart targets a certain group of people to hire as their employees. Usually, the working class who are struggling to get by; people who feel like they don’t have a choice.
Do you know what it’s like to live paycheck by paycheck? I know I do… and that’s exactly what Walmart or most of your employers want.
They pay you enough, so you don’t quit, but not enough so you can’t leave to find better opportunities.
Is it fair? No, but I guess that’s how businesses work… that’s how our society works…
It’s Pointless To Protest Against Walmart
I’ve heard of many stories about Walmart employees getting fired after protesting about wages. They obviously don’t care about what you think.
If they wanted to give you higher wages, they would’ve done so a long time ago. Walmart is not unionized which means you don’t have someone fighting for wages.
Instead of protesting against Walmart and trying to change them, why not change yourself?
Before you get mad at me for saying this…
I understand that not everyone is computer savvy and understand how to build a website and start a blog, but that’s why I’m here to help you.
You have to change yourself to be better by opening the doors to more opportunities. I had zero knowledge of website building, blogging, SEO, etc when I first started.
What kept me going was the drive to succeed. We can all do it. It’s just how badly do you want it.
You Have To Make Things Happen
You don’t need an education, degree, skill set, or a lot of money to become financially successful. As long as you have the desire to make money and a good mindset.
It’s possible to work at home and make way more money than working at Walmart and other companies.
Here’s the drawback… It requires work.
However, you don’t have to do physical labor to achieve it. If you have time to use the internet to watch YouTube videos then you have time to make money online.
The choice is yours… continue living the way you live or say no to yourself and change your life now.
Don’t Give Yourself Excuses
Like anything in life, if it requires effort then there are excuses as to why you can’t do it.
You see, the only person stopping you from success is you.
I remember telling myself that I don’t have the time or I’m tired. Well, guess what ended up happening? I ended up sitting on my couch watching Spongebob Squarepants.
In the end, I asked myself this, “If I have time to watch television then how come I can’t make time to make money online?”
I guess it’s because of the uncertainty of success.— At least there is a possibility of success if I tried though right?
The next time you give yourself the excuse as to why you can’t do it. As yourself this… “How badly do I want to succeed?”
