Target is a popular retail chain supplier; you and I may love Target, but how are their working conditions?

New target store opening in Coquitlam, BC Canada. It is the second-largest discount retailer in the United States, behind Walmart.

Well for starters, Target will be raising their minimum wage from $13 an hour in 2019, to now $15 per hour for employees permanently.

Target’s increased starting minimum wage begins next month on July 5th. I’d say that’s pretty generous of Target, and that’s not all the company is doing by investing in their team members.


Target is also giving frontline employees in stores and in distribution centers, a bonus of $200 as a thank you from the company to employees, for working during the pandemic.

Plus, you all deserve it! We all thank you for your hard work and keeping things running smoothly every day during the virus.


Lastly, the retail store will be extending one more hand and offering free virtual doctor visits for every team member, regardless if they are on the company’s healthcare plan.

Health care benefits are as well being extended for employees that were originally provided to team members due to the pandemic.

“In the best of times, our team brings incredible energy and empathy to our work, and in harder times they bring those qualities plus extraordinary resilience and agility to keep Target on the forefront of meeting the changing needs of our guests and our business year after year, said Brian Cornell, Chairman and CEO of Target Corporation.”

“Everything we aspire to do and be as a company builds on the central role our team members play in our strategy, their dedication to our purpose and the connection they create with our guests and communities, stated Brian Cornell, Chairman and CEO of Target Corporation.”
