How Much Would Walmart Prices Rise If They Paid a Better Wage?

  • According to researchers Ken Jacobs, Dave Graham-Squire, and Stephanie Luce, 41.4 percent of a pay increase to $12 an hour would go to workers in families with total incomes below 200 percent of the federal poverty level.
  • The researches conclude that even if Walmart were to pass 100 percent of a $12 wage increase to consumers, its average impact on a Walmart shopper would be negligible: it would raise prices only 1.1 percent.
  • This 1.1 percent increase in price works out to $0.46 per shopping trip, or $12.49 per year, for the average consumer who spends approximately $1,187 per year at Walmart.
Average Retail Prices Per Pound in U.S. Cities (May 2015 data):

Rice (Uncooked): $0.68
Beans (Dry): $1.49
Potatoes: $0.65

Apples: $1.30


Ground Beef: $4.14

Chicken (Boneless breast): $3.41
Eggs: $2.07
Milk: $3.40


This data comes directly from bls.gov for the average in cities in the United States and is current. The list goes on and plant foods are consistently much cheaper than animal foods.

I’m starting making commissions, please don’t laugh, I need to get money to pay for my insura—OH HEALTH CAN WAIT, I need to buy games on upcoming Steam Sale. My first goal is Witcher 3. So far I had two customers and they were very happy and smiling at the gorgeous art they get for the price of a discounted Starbucks coffee (but keep in mind, I will eventually change the prices, so it’s better to commission me now), you can see my commission profile on deviantart and this certain commission platform (over there you get slightly different thing, that’s why the prices vary)

Upcoming dolls:

Alright everyone, we are approaching doll season which means its time to start preparing our wallets! I’m going to create a comprehensive list of all the dolls we know coming out so you can gauge how much you should start saving:

  • Disneyland Resort exclusive Aurora doll: rumored retail price $119.95
  • D23 exclusive OUaT Snow White and Evil Queen: retail price $129.95
  • D23 exclusive Hans and Elsa designer set: retail price $129.95
  • D23 exclusive 17″ slave Jasmine: retail price $119.95
  • Pre-order for 17″ blue Jasmine: retail price $119.95
  • (RUMOR): 17″ Aladdin: retail price $119.95
  • (RUMOR) Elsa and Hans regular designer set: retail price $129.95
  • Snow White and the Hag designer set: retail price $129.95
  • Rapunzel and Gothel designer set: retail price $129.95
  • Ariel and Ursula designer set: retail price $129.95
  • Peter Pan and Hook designer set: retail price $129.95
  • Frozen Anna and Kristoff designer set: retail price $129.95

There are a lot of dolls coming out and the prices are steep. If you will have to buy some of these dolls on eBay, like the D23 ones, the prices will most likely double and triple the retail price. Start saving. Looks like we’re going to have another busy doll year!

Ok, I really need money before school starts cause personal reasons, so, I decided to open headshot comissions! I can do almost all the species of animals or even humans (tough I don’t know how to barely do them)
I feel so bad having to do comissions for money but I’m forced to do it… If you are interested please send me a message where we can talk about the details of the commish! And if you are not interested a reblog or spreading this would be so appreciated ;w; Thanks for reading this and have a good day! ♡
