Target raises starting pay for 2nd time in less than a year

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Target is raising its minimum starting pay for workers for the second time in less than a year after seeing a bigger and better pool of candidates.   

Target, which hiked starting pay to $11 an hour last fall, said all workers this spring will receive a minimum of $12 per hour.   

CEO Brian Cornell said Tuesday that Target will offer workers $15 an hour by 2020.  

He says Target Corp. recorded a 30 percent increase in applicants when it boosted pay, and a better quality of applicant as well.
