Aldi ups workers’ pay for the second time this year as inflation bites in the UK

Aldi has said it will give store workers across the UK a second pay rise since the start of the year as inflation continues to surge.

The German discounter, which runs 970 UK stores, said store assistants will see with their minimum pay increase to £10.50 an hour, and £11.95 for those in Greater London.

It said the pay hike will support 26,000 store workers and take the firm’s pay investment to £43 million over the past year.

The move comes five months after the group’s UK minimum pay increased to £10.10 from £9.55, while it rose to £11.55 from £11.07 within the M25.
