BUDGET supermarket Aldi pledged yesterday to increase staff wages to a minimum rate of £8.40 per hour from next February.

The company has confirmed that all its British employees will be paid at least £8.40 — £9.45 in London from February 1.
Aldi is the latest in a string of supermarkets to announce pay rises for staff.

Morrisons recently said that from March it will increase hourly staff pay to £8.20 from a previous minimum of £6.83.

Lidl has also recently introduced wage increases, paying staff a minimum of £8.20 an hour across England, Scotland and Wales and £9.35 an hour in London.

Lidl claims its move will cost it £9 million.

Aldi has said it will not need to raise prices to fund its move.

It has also announced plans to recruit and train more than 600 apprentices over an 18-month period starting in January.
