Target's new $13 an hour minimum is well about the federal minimum of 7.25.

In 2018, Target bumped its minimum hourly pay from $11 to $12. It's part of Target's goal to hit $15 an hour by the end of 2020.

Target has more than 300,000 employees and operates more than 1,800 stores in the United States.
