Aldi hands shopworkers another pay rise to a minimum of £11.40 per hour
The discount supermarket, which employs more than 40,000 UK staff, said that all store assistants will receive the new rate nationally from July 1.
It comes only two months after a pay increase came into force, which handed store assistants £11 an hour.
Aldi said the series of pay increases means that staff will be earning roughly 13 per cent more than the same period last year.
The retailer said it has invested more than £100m in colleague pay over the past 12 months, amid continued competition to secure and retain workers due to labour shortages.
Giles Hurley, chief executive officer of Aldi UK and Ireland, said: “We believe our colleagues are the best in the sector and we are committed to ensuring they are also the best paid.”
