If you work for Lidl we’ve got some good news for you
Retail giant Lidl is increasing the wages of more than 16,000 of its employees, saying they will be the highest paid supermarket workers in the UK.
The firm will be increasing entry-level wages from £8.45 to £8.75 an hour outside London and from £9.75 to £10.20 within the M25.
Lidl said the move, which will come into effect from March 2018, represents an additional annual investment of over £3.5 million.
The rates match the new voluntary living wage announced on Monday by the Living Wage Foundation.
Lidl became the first supermarket to pay the real living wage two years ago.
