Here's today's feel-good story:

Walmart is investing almost $1 billion over the next several years to aid in career training and development for employees.

Walmart is the largest U.S. private employer, and through it's Live Better U (LBU) education program, it will pay 100% of college tuition and books for associates.

“We are creating a path of opportunity for our associates to grow their careers at Walmart, so they can continue to build better lives for themselves and their families,” said Lorraine Stomski, senior vice president of learning and leadership at Walmart, “This investment is another way we can support our associates to pursue their passion and purpose while removing the barriers that too often keep adult working learners from obtaining degrees.”
