Retail giant Target is just one of a host of major retailers that, with much fanfare, announced they would raise the minimum wage for all of their employees to $15/hour. Target made the announcement back in 2017, followed by a number of other big-box stores, committing to bring all employee pay up to a minimum of $15 by the end of 2020 and since that time has been increasing pay for its workers – and reducing their hours. Simple math would dictate that other actions would be needed to justify the increased hourly wage and those other actions thus far have come in the form of fewer hours according to recent news reports on CNN Business and elsewhere. Retail margins are like the proverbial water balloon in that sense: it only holds so much water pushing in one spot only moves the water to another . . . file under watch out what you ask for, you might just get it!
