Target raises minimum wage to $11

There is a need to raise the pay because if you make the lowest pay
you give the lowest sales. Tax burdens or people doing without
not good for the labor force along with other issues.

The fear of consumer based pricing at the towns people low pay.
If the ridding of the insurance mandate, all the workers that can't afford
to use their insurance and will drop their insurance for a bigger
paycheck. Something like 60 million children waged adults
and many businesses having many uninsured workers taking
it easy not wanting to get hurt at work. And the liability issue of
uninsured workers.

Just raise the pay so the workers can just pull out their checkbook
and pay for healthcare. Not kill because the people that can't afford to use it.
Better sales not doing without!

Why can't people see the point? It's about what will happen if they don't.
Minimum wage has not gone up in 10 years. Stagnation is death!

~~~~~Target raises minimum wage to $11 an hour, $15 by 2020
Target is giving its workers a raise.

The company announced Monday that it would increase the minimum hourly wage for all workers to $11 next month.

Target (TGT) also committed to a $15 minimum wage by the end of 2020.
The company says the increase will also apply to the more than 100,000 hourly workers it is hiring for the holidays.

Target has been steadily raising its minimum wage for the past few years. Last year, it hiked the amount to $10 an hour.

The $11 wage is higher than the minimum wage in 48 states, and it matches amounts in Massachusetts and Washington, Target says.

It's also much higher than the current federal minimum wage of $7.25.
