    is not as accurate as it could be. "Walmart had reportedly promised District officials that it would pay an average of $12.39 or more, so the fact that $12.50 was reason to pull out sheds more than a little doubt on the corporation's claims."

    No it does not.

    In order to get an average of 12.50 you need to pay many under that wage. a Bottom of 12.39 would prevent that.

    Walmart has very thin profit margins.
