the program pointed out that the program allows employees to earn a degree without amassing college debtWalmart’s announcement comes as retailers struggle to attract and retain workers in an increasingly competitive labor market The unemployment rate is at a 17-year low and the number of open jobs in retail – 723000 as of March – has continued to grow according to government dataEarlier this year Walmart raised its starting hourly wage from $9 to $11 and began offering paid parental leave and adoption benefits to full-time employees Other companies have also taken similar measures in recent months with Target pledging to raise its minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2020 and Starbucks offering paid sick leave and stock grants to its baristasWalmart based in Bentonville Arkansas joins a growing number of employers in offering subsidized college educations Chipotle Mexican Grill provides its workers as much as $5250 in annual tuition assistance while Starbucks gives employees a full ride to Arizona State University for undergraduate degrees in more than 60 subjectsFor now Walmart will pay only for degrees in business and supply-chain management because those areas of study "will be relevant across the industry and for future work opportunities" according to spokeswoman Erica Jones Employees can sign up for the program after working at Walmart for 90 days Executives said there are no other requirements or fees and participating employees are not obligated to remain with the company for any period of time (Employees who leave Walmart before completing their degrees are no longer eligible for company subsidies but can continue on their own)And unlike the tuition-reimbursement programs offered by many other companies Walmart does not require employees to foot any costs

have lower turnover"But some said workers could face new challenges because they already struggle to plan around unpredictable work schedules Walmart employees have long complained that they don’t receive as many shifts as they’d like particularly if they need to schedule around other commitments like schoolwork or childcare Nearly 70 percent of part-time Walmart workers say they’d like to be full-time according to a recent survey by OUR Walmart an employee group that advocates for workers’ rights"Because of Walmart’s erratic scheduling system many people who work at Walmart are unable to plan to take college classes or even pick up their children from school" said Cynthia Murray who has been working at a Walmart store in Laurel Maryland for 18 yearsWalmart executives said they did not know how much the program would cost the company which last year had $486 billion in revenue but said they expected as many as 68000 employees to sign up in the first five years Annual tuition and
