Walmart is raising wages for 425,000 of its workers.

The country's largest private employer said it would raise pay for hourly U.S. workers to an average above $15 an hour.

But that doesn't mean everyone will be making that much.

Its minimum starting wage for U.S. workers will remain at $11 an hour.

Walmart employs about 1.5 million hourly U.S. workers.
