Target is in the news for two reasons today: first they are raising their minimum wage to $15 an hour effective July 5th.

The increase goes to full and part-time hourly Target team members in stores, warehouses, and at the company headquarters.

The second headline for Target is in regards to the announcement that Juneteenth will be observed as a company-wide holiday.

Target distribution centers and stores will remain open and hourly workers will get time and a half if they have to work on Juneteenth.
