LITTLE ROCK, AR - Arkansas' biggest company and America's largest retailer won't be supporting a minimum wage increase.

A Walmart spokesperson has told the Huffington Post it won't be backing the president's plan.

The White House plan calls for an increase over time from $7.25 an hour to $10.10 an hour.

Arkansas' minimum wage is even lower at $6.25.
