Supermarket wages ranked including Tesco, Morrisons and Aldi – and you could earn up to £10.20 per hour | The Sun

WAGES are on the rise at supermarkets, with Aldi the latest shop to announce workers will be getting more.

Aldi's wage increase will mean their staff members will receive the highest wage out of any supermarket in the UK as workers will receive £10.50 an hour from September.

It's an increase of 40p meaning the wage will be higher than previous winner Morrisons. Workers living in London will get an even higher wage of £11.95.

Rates of pay in London are usually higher among many employers to reflect the higher cost of living in the capital.

The supermarket pay rise comes as millions of workers face a cost of living crunch from higher bills, ranging from food and fuel to energy.

Aldi is not the only supermarket to increase wages in recent months.
