How Target’s Continuing to Invest in Team Members with $15 Starting Minimum Wage—And Much More
A Bullseye View | June 17, 2020
Target's team members play the leading role in driving Target’s commitment to guests and communities. Target most recently invests in their team as their most important asset announcing permanently raising their starting wage to $15 beginning July 5th.
With the changes announced today, Target will invest nearly $1 billion more this year in the well-being, health and safety of team members than it did in 2019, including increased wages, paid leaves, bonus payouts, personal protective equipment, and a donation to the Target Team Member Giving Fund.
“The most important investments we make are in our team. I have tremendous gratitude for the way our team members show up with such purpose and pride for our guests, communities and one another,” said Melissa Kremer, Target’s Chief Human Resources Officer. “These investments help ensure that team members can build meaningful careers, take care of themselves and their families, and contribute to building our communities through their work inside and outside of Target.”
