I spent some time figuring this out, (From memory admitidly suspect) and if Walmart gave all it's 500K workers a three dollar an hour raise, their yearly profits would decrease by four billion bucks, leaving them a paltry 16 billion to divy up.

I don't want to crap on your point, but Walmart has more than 2 million employees. So your suggestion means their profit would decline by 12 billion bucks, leaving them 4 billion to divvy up
