Giant Food Stores will boost its minimum pay to $9 per hour, effective June 7, the company said Tuesday.
The change applies to 197 non-union supermarkets run by Carlisle-based Giant and its Martin’s division.
Data from a website that tracks wages shows the decision will be worth as much as $1.67 per hour extra for the company’s workforce.
“Our associates are the foundation of our success and we have always believed in paying competitive wages to attract the best talent,” said Giant President Tom Lenkevich in a prepared statement.
