Skip to comments.Workers Say Target's Move To Increase Minimum Wage Has Backfired
Posted on 10/21/2019 4:15:02 PM PDT by NohSpinZone
The dozens of former and current Target employees interviewed said that less hours have made it difficult or even impossible for them to pay their bills or get health insurance.
I got that dollar raise but Im getting $200 less in my paycheck, said Heather, a employee whose hours were cut from full-time to 20 hours per week. I have no idea how Im going to pay rent or buy food.
Target employees become eligible for health insurance if they average over 30 hours a week. However, a number of employees who were working more than that say they have had their hours scaled back against their will.

Welcome to real life.
$15 per hour x 0.0 hours = $0.00
Go on strike for $25 an hour!
Wow. Who could possibly have seen this coming?
And again: since when is any business a welfare organization?
It’s not and Target should manage its payroll the way it wants to. But it’s just slightly ironic coming from such a virtue-signalling company.
Thank obama for obama-care. Full time workers are now a liability
They should learn to code. At least that’s what socialists are always saying. Good luck with that.
There’s a retail store near me (not a Target, but a national chain) that has only ONE full time employee who is not management. And she’s only full time because she’s been there forever and is sort of a quasi manager of something or other.

Target was or is owned by Dayton-Hudson, the company that gave us Sen. Mark Dayton (D-MN).
When it was discovered back in the 1990s that Target was funneling money to Planned Parenthood, the company pulled their support to great cheer from pro-lifers - only to find that they kept giving the money through a foundation they had established.
Be careful what you DEMAND...cause you just might get it.
A proper request at raising the wage could have been better negotiated over more time. Target got tired of all the loudmouth picketers making noise in front of their doors.

PUSHING for more money at a ‘Brick and Mortar’ in today’s Amazon economy - WHO could see that as problematic?
Yikes! It’s all so confusing when all you do is flip burgers all day.
Virtually anything you can buy at Target can be ordered off Amazon and delivered the next day (in most cases) with no shipping. Gen Xers and Millennials can order what they need from the comfort of their apartment, their moms basement, or their desk module at work and dont have to Uber to Target to get it.
I used to like Target, the only thing we buy there now is laundry detergent. They are one of the few stores that carry Arm and Hammer additive-free detergent. Due to the $15.00/hr wage, there is a lot fewer people working there. They have gone full homo even making it more irritating to go there.
