Supermarket wages unveiled as Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Asda pay packets ranked

Many people debate the best supermarket in Britain.

Tesco is Britain's largest supermarket, but the likes of Sainsbury's, Morrisons and cheaper alternatives such as Lidl and Aldi also have their favourites.

But who is best for when it comes to paying their workers?

Last month, supermarkets in the UK altered salaries of their staff after a change to the National Living Wage and minimum wage.

There's also now one supermarket that is paying staff its staff £10 an hour – and it isn't who you might think it'd be.

A ranking of the job wages based on April 2021 figures shows Morrisons staff take home £10 an hour, reports Birmingham Mail.

As well as the great hourly rate, Morrisons staff also get great benefits, such as 10% staff discount on their shopping, and each worker gets two extra cards to pass onto friends or family members.

Aldi comes in second for the best pay packet for it's workers, with rates of £9.55, whilst £9.50 rates at at both Lidl and Waitrose.

Meanwhile, Sainsbury's and Tesco are matched at £9.30.

A Sainsbury’s spokesperson said: “Our colleagues do a brilliant job and we are so proud of how they continue to go above and beyond for our customers.

“We have made two thank you payments to frontline workers in recognition of this in the last year and regularly review colleague pay to make sure we offer leading rates.

“This is in addition to our colleague recognition scheme, which allows line managers to recognise and reward colleagues in a range of ways throughout the year.”

Meanwhile, Asda pays it's workers £9.18 outside London, and over £10 inside the capital.
