Costco Increases Pay for Lowest Paid Employees

'Costco Wholesale' executives have announced plans to increase wages.  The biggest raises will go to its lowest paid employees.

Beginning next thursday, they'll get a dollar an hour raise to $10.50 an hour.  And the pay scale will increase more than four percent, topping out at 20-dollars an hour.

Costco says they believe paying more than the competition gives them a better workforce to choose from.
