Target and Walmart have been in competition for years, especially when it comes to the wages they pay their employees. Walmart’s current starting hourly wage is $9.41 during employee training, and is bumped up to $10 post-training. Now, Walmart seems to be following Target’s lead and has announced plans to increase their hourly wage to $11. Walmart, the world’s largest private employer, also stated that it plans to spend $400 million dollars on one-time employee bonuses. Eligible employees will receive between a $200 to $1,000 bonus, depending on their seniority with the company. Walmart is also increasing the amount of paid maternity and paternity leave and offering up to $5,000 to pay the fees associated with adoption. Additionally, health insurance packages are available to both full and part time employees and their significant others.
