Wal-Mart Wages

The American Bar Association Journal had a brief article on the fact that Wal-Mart has begun to balk about billing increases caused in part by high associate salaries at law firms. Wal-Mart is a huge employer in rural areas and is known for its low wage jobs. But for some reason this struck me as a fascinating bit of news. Will this be the Wal-Mart tipping point? Will people begin to take the threats of low wage jobs seriously if Wal-Mart hurts attorney wages?
