From September, all of the supermarket's staff who are paid hourly will receive an increase of 40p an hour on their current rate.
It takes Aldi’s minimum pay rates for its store assistants to a sector-leading £10.50 an hour nationally and £11.95 in London.
The new rates exceed the Living Wage Foundation’s recommended real living wage which is currently £9.90 nationally and £11.05 within the M25.
