Dick’s Sporting Goods Gives Workers Raise
DICK'S SPORTING GOODS STORES WILL EXTEND PREMIUM PAY THROUGH END OF 2020 AND CLOSE ON THANKSGIVING
(CNN) – It’s been a tough year for many retailers and their employees due to the pandemic.
One bright spot for people working at Dick’s Sporting Goods is having their premium-pay extended through the end of the year.
Dick’s says that pay boost is 15% above ordinary wages.
The company also announced it would follow a growing trend and close all stores on Thanksgiving.
In previous years, it was open limited hours on the holiday.
Just a few months ago as countless stores closed due to the pandemic, Dick’s announced it would furlough a significant number of its roughly 40,000 employees.
