Discount retail giant Wal-Mart says it’s spending some $65.7 million to lift near minimum wage rates now paid to some 42,000 store employees in the Volunteer State. The move comes after several groups called on the Arkansas—based company to address low wages and lack of benefits that plague employees now. The company says beginning next year, new fulltime average wages will stand at $13.34 per hour. Part-time Tennessee workers will get $10.48 per hour. Managers working on an hourly wage will also see pay hikes.
