By now, you’ve probably heard that a new rule requiring petco employees to earn the same amount as employees at other companies could cost the economy billions of dollars in lost wages.
The rule is meant to help petco make up for the fact that some workers are paid more than other workers in the industry.
Petco has been trying to come up with a way to avoid this wage gap for some time, and the Department of Labor (DOL) released a rule last month that would help petcos get the new rule implemented.
The new rule would require petco to offer workers at least the same salary and benefits that employees at comparable companies would receive if the workers were treated as equal.
However, petcos have a long history of paying employees more than the amount that other workers get.
While the DOL said that this rule would help, the rule itself doesn’t actually have a concrete effect.
It’s just a proposal to address the fact many petcos are paying workers a lot less than their competition.
The only way that the rule will affect petco’s bottom line is if it passes Congress and becomes law.
Petcos have been making the same argument about the rule since it was proposed, arguing that it will hurt their bottom line because petcos will have to hire more employees to make up the difference.
Petcare workers who are paid less than workers in other industries have also been raising questions about whether the new rules would actually hurt their ability to make ends meet.
The rules proposal is not the first attempt by the D.O.
O to tackle wage inequality.
Earlier this year, the DOOO created a new position called the Wage and Hour Division.
The Wage and Labor Division oversees the implementation of the new wage and hour rules.
A petco spokesperson told ABC News that the company’s policy team was working to address all wage and labor concerns that have been raised in response to the proposal.
Petco has also been trying since 2012 to increase the number of employees at its petco retail stores to make room for the new policy.
At the time, it estimated that the policy would cost it more than $20 million.
In March, the company told ABCNews.com that it would increase its hiring for petcos by 40% over the next two years to reach an expected 1 million petcos.
