// Aldi is hiking store assistant pay for the second time this year
// All staff will receive a minimum of £10.50 pounds an hour and £11.95 in London from September
Aldi is giving around 26,000 store colleagues a second pay increase this year, as it holds onto its position as the UK’s best-paying supermarket.
All hourly paid colleagues at the discount supermarket will receive an increase of 40p an hour on their current hourly rate.
Meaning that all store assistants would receive a minimum of £10.50 an hour nationally and £11.95 in London from September.
Aldi also said that it remains the only supermarket to offer paid breaks, which for the average store colleague is now worth more than £830 a year.
Aldi UK and Ireland chief executive Giles Hurley said: “Our new rates of pay maintain Aldi’s position as the UK’s highest paying supermarket. 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.”
