Trade – Aldi increases minimum wage – economy

The discounter Aldi will increase the minimum wage for its employees in Germany from June, from 12.50 to 14 euros. The retail chain is reacting to the current wave of price increases, said Aldi Süd. “Everything is currently becoming more expensive, and of course the employees feel that too.” The sister company Aldi Nord is also raising the minimum wage in step, said a company spokesman. The minimum wage at Aldi will therefore continue to be well above the statutory minimum wage, which will only increase to EUR 10.45 in July 2022.
