CVS to raise minimum wage to $15 an hour
(CNN) - CVS is raising its minimum wage to $15 an hour.
The pharmacy giant says it will begin increasing wages for hourly employees this month and hit the $15 mark across the company by next July.
About 65% of CVS’s hourly employees already make more than $15 an hour. Those who do, like pharmacy technicians and call center representatives, will also be seeing a wage increase.
CVS employs nearly 300,000 people.
Several companies, like Amazon, Target and Best Buy, have also recently moved their starting wages to $15 an hour.
