Target is raising entry-level wages for its store associates, a move that could put pressure on Walmart to do the same:
“The two companies have taken steps to become places people want to work. These steps include offering more training, improving benefits, and paying more per hour. Now, however, Target has upped the ante by increasing its entry-level pay to $2 more per hour than the $11 minimum wage Walmart pays.”
