Workers to get THIRD bonus & pandemic pay rise

Supermarket chain Sainsbury’s has announced that it will increase salaries for staff at its supermarkets and Argos shops, and also pay a bonus to frontline staff – the third since the pandemic hit – Retail Gazette reported.

The wage increase will see the average worker’s wages grow from £9.30 an hour – and £9 for those working in Argos locations – to £9.50 an hour as of March.

Additional benefits are being given to those working in stores within central London, who will see their pay rise to £10.10 an hour, and frontline workers, who will receive a three per cent annual bonus.
