US: Gap to raise minimum wage for US workers
Gap will increase the minimum hourly rate for its US store workers this year
Clothing giant Gap Inc will raise the minimum hourly rate for its US store workers to $9 in 2014 and $10 in 2015 as part of efforts to "do more than sell clothes".
The move is expected to benefit around 65,000 workers. CEO and chairman Glenn Murphy added that it will "directly support our business, and is one that we expect to deliver a return many times over."
The move has also been applauded by President Barack Obama who, along with Senate Democrats, is campaigning to increase the minimum wage rate to $10.10 an hour by 2016, from $7.25.
