ALDI in Co Kildare is set to increase its minimum rate of pay to the living wage of €11.50, in a move the German supermarket says follows a period of sustained sales growth. The new rate, which will come into effect in February, represents an increase of 4.5% on entry-level pay for store assistants and 10% for stock assistants and caretakers. Aldi store assistants currently earn €11 an hour, significantly above the national minimum wage of €8.65.
