According to the good people at Demos, Walmart could easily give its low wage workers a raise, and, with a little sacrifice by corporate leaders, all of the company’s workers could earn a salary well above the poverty line.  Where do they get the data to make this claim?  From a presentation by Walmart CEO Bill Simon.  Check out this infographic to see how Demos finds a happy solution that would please both Walmart workers and customers – no prices need to be raised.  The rich heads of the company would still be rich, just not as rich.
