Payday is about to get a bit sweeter for many Target employees.
On Sept. 25, the retail giant announced plans to hike its minimum wage for all workers to $11 an hour beginning next month. The company also promised to increase that figure to $15 an hour by 2020.
"We’re proud to say that our team members are known for going the extra mile," Target explained on its website. "That kind of effort is something to recognize."
Notably, the wage hike beginning in October will also extend to the approximate 100,000 temporary workers the company plans on hiring for the holiday season.
Target's wage hike falls in line with the retailer's bold and decisively more progressive company mission taking shape in recent years.
