Raise the salary by $40/month of all employees that are eligible for or are collecting SNAP benefits.
Why is this important?
Many Walmart part-time and low-wage employees are eligible for SNAP food benefits are losing, on average $36/month beginning this month (November 2013) because of SNAP benefit cuts by Congress. By raising their wages to the equivalent of $40/month these employees will have approximately the same amount of spendable income. $40 less $3.10 Social Security, $.72 Medicare Taxes, $.50 SDI is approximately $36.
The businesses in communities that sell to the employees are directly affected by the decrease in disposable income, as well. By not paying it's employees enough, WalMart is undercutting it's own customer base. SNAP food subsidy cut are coming at the cruelest time of year as low wage employees try to celebrate both Thanksgiving and Christmas.
