A major retailer is showing employees they are valuable.
Target is increasing its minimum wage to 12-dollars and hour, with a goal to pay 15-dollars an hour by late 2020. Last year, the retail chain raised its minimum wage to 11-dollars and hour. The company says it's not just an investment in its 350-thousand employees, but the experience people have in their stores.
The last jump in minimum wage also increased the quality of the company’s applicant pool, so they decided to keep going.
Target is improving in other areas too, as they eye curbside pickup and same day deliveries.
