Report: Target hiking employees' minimum wages to $10 per hour starting in May


CHICAGO - Discount retailer Target will be raising employee wages to a minimum of $10 an hour, Reuters reported.

Target store managers are informing employees about the wage hike and should see the raise go into effect in May, two sources with direct knowledge of the situation told Reuters.

The $1-per-hour raise marks the second time Target has followed Wal-Mart Stores Inc in raising base wages. It also comes as a union-led push for a $15 minimum wage, the so-called “Fight for Fifteen” movement, is gaining traction in cities across the country and even has become a topic in the U.S. presidential campaign, with Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders calling for a $15 “living wage."
