Target is not competitive at all in my area anymore. You can get hired at Panda Express and make more money working there then Target. Almost every business in my area is advertising a starting wage of at least $15 an hour if not more. I also know for a fact that people on this forum have talked about how the starting rate of the Targets in their area going up.Exactly. I think a lot of people don't realize that at least half of the states in this great union of ours have minimum wages of ten dollars or less an hour last time I looked. Federal minimum is currently still $7.25, which many states follow.
Sure Target deserves some criticism like all big corporations, but paywise they are competitive and better than some. Lots of people like to go on about poor retail workers and their crappy minimum wage jobs, but that really isn't always the case. I get paid over $16 an hour to hang and fold clothes. I'm not complaining!
