Charter has announced a plan to permanently raise its minimum wage to $20 per hour over the next two years for all employees.
In a statement, the company said it had begun discussions around raising its existing $15 minimum wage, but is beginning that process now in light of the current environment and the challenges many are facing.
An initial retroactive $1.50 increase was implemented this week for hourly frontline employees in the field and customer operation groups, who are the face of the company for its nearly 30 million customers.
Additionally, these same field and customer operations hourly workers will receive another permanent $1.50 per hour raise on top of their March 2021 merit increase. Charter has committed that in 2022 all hourly employees will have a minimum starting rate of $20 per hour.
