How Walmart Can Provide Thanksgiving for Its Own Workers

Senior Policy Analyst Amy Traub joins Yahoo Finance's Lauren Lyster to discuss one way Walmart, the nation's largest private employer, could raise wages for its workforce.

In particular, Amy notes that Walmart could give workers a $5.83 an hour raise in place of spending billions buying back shares of its own stock. Doing so wouldn't undermine the company's competiveness, but it would boost the economy and likely reverse the slumping same-store sales Walmart has experienced for several quarters.
