Target bumps minimum wage for the second time in a year
El Paso, TEXAS —
Target employees will soon see a jump in their pay - for the second time in the last year.
The retail giant announced that it will raise its minimum wage to $12 an hour this spring. That is a full dollar increase from the $11 an hour employees started making in the fall.
Officials with the company said they saw a rise in seasonal job applications after the announcement of their last pay hike and that the pool of talent was stronger.
Target says it still plans to raise its minimum wage to $15 per hour by 2020.
