Target announced yesterday that they will be raising their minimum wage to $11 effective next month. This rate will apply to their current employees AND their 100,000 new seasonal hires!
This is higher than the minimum wage in 48 states – and equal to the minimum wage in the two highest paying states, Massachusetts and Washington. The federal minimum wage is just $7.25.
But that’s not all! Target has pledged that their minimum wage will reach $15 per hour by 2020!
