Quad Cities Target Locations To Raise Hourly Pay For Workers

Treating employees well is always a good business model, and Target is proving they value their workers by raising their hourly pay. According to NPR, the company is increasing their base rate to $11 an hour next month, and will increase it again to $15 an hour by the end of 2020.

The retail giant just increased their minimum to $10 last year but is upping their game to $11 an hour to help combat increased employee turnover rates. Target’s main competitor, Walmart, recently raised rates to $10 an hour after new employees take a training course, so there’s no doubt Target feels the need to keep up as well.

Locations will see the increase nationwide, including at Davenport and Moline stores. All staff and the 100,000 seasonal workers Target plans to hire for the holidays will receive the raise, which is a higher minimum than 48 states, excluding Washington and Massachusetts.

$11 an hour may not seem like much, but it adds up when you consider Illinois’ minimum wage is $8.25 and Iowa’s is even lower at $7.25. The fact that Target is increasing the hourly to $15 in 2020 is pretty significant as well. I would say if you’re in the market for some extra cash, now is the time to apply at Target.
