Our ranking of shopfloor pay at the UK’s biggest retailers shows a rapid pace of change, but with shrinking volumes and rampant inflation to consider, how high can it realistically rise?

It was just two years ago that Morrisons became the first supermarket to pay its workers more than £10 an hour. This year, half the UK’s 10 biggest grocers have stormed up to the £11 mark.

Until recently, tense competition by the supermarkets to retain talent resulted in an even playing field, with TescoAsdaSainsbury’s, Aldi and Lidl all awarding £11 per hour. But Aldi upped the ante again last month, raising its base pay by 13% to £11.40.
