Taking care of employees inside and outside of work is important, and one company that understands that is Target.
Beginning July 5, all Target employees will earn at least $15 per hour. According to the company, more than 275,000 workers, including part-time and full-time employees, distribution centers and corporate staff will benefit from the increased wage.
The move achieves, a few months ahead of schedule, a company goal set in 2017 to increase to $15 per hour by December 2020. Target will also provide a one-time $200 bonus to frontline store and distribution center workers for their work throughout the pandemic.
