The local unit of German discount chain Aldi will raise wages by 8-19% from July 1, Aldi Magyarország said on Thursday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Aldi already raised wages by 8% in January and is raising them again, as it said it wants to continue to keep them competitive. The company said the sharp rise in prices in recent months and the rise in inflation lead to the additional wage increase.
A full-time Aldi worker will get starting pay of at least HUF 391,600 a month, gross, while staff wages will top out at a gross HUF 542,400 a month.
Management salaries will range between a gross monthly HUF 749,500 and HUF 1,157,000.
