Target Will Observe Juneteenth as a Company Holiday

Target has become the latest company to make Juneteenth a national paid 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.
Target corporate offices will be closed.

In addition, Target will raise the minimum wage for workers nationwide to $15 an hour starting on July 5th.

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

Target had planned to reach the $15 an hour minimum wage by the end of 2020.

The retailer is also giving frontline store and distribution workers a one-time $200 bonus for their efforts during the coronavirus pandemic.
