Target to raise its minimum wage to $11 per hour, promising $15 by 2020
Thousands of Target employees are about to get a raise. The big-box retailer on Monday said it will start to increase its hourly minimum wage to $11 beginning next month. Target's minimum wage was previously boosted to $10 per hour last May. The pay raise will outpace Wal-Mart's recent minimum wage increase. The two retailers have been engaged in a silent wage war that dates back years.
