Aldi hikes pay for 26,000 store employees

Aldi is increasing pay for its store workforce for the second time this year.

The budget retailer said that from September it is giving around 26,000 employees a minimum of £10.50 an hour nationally and £11.95 for those working within the M25; an increase of 40p an hour.

The company says it is the only supermarket to offer paid breaks in shifts, which it claims is worth more than £830 in pay.

“Our new rates of pay maintain Aldi’s position as the UK’s highest paying supermarket,” said Giles Hurley, chief executive, Aldi UK and Ireland. "This announcement recognises the amazing contribution our colleagues make in serving local communities across the country. Their outstanding efforts have ensured that our customers continue to have access to fresh affordable food, every single day.”
