Aldi has become the first major UK supermarket chain to commit to paying all store staff across the country at least £11 per hour.
The discounter said that starting pay for all store assistants will hit the new rate from January 1, 2023. Those working within the M25 will be paid an hourly rate of £12.45 from the turn of the year.
Both rates outstrip the markers set by the Living Wage Foundation and take Aldi’s investment in pay to £81m across the last 12 months alone.
