In strong job markets, such as the one we’re experiencing now, employers face the reality of a potentially fleeting workforce. An abundance of jobs, paired with the rise of transferable skills and the newfound mobility that workers enjoy, leaves companies with the task of continuously coming up with new and innovative ways to keep talent.

Today, I am proud to announce that we are the first bank in the United States to increase our minimum wage to $20 an hour for all full-time employees. By raising our minimum wage, we are continuing to honor our roots in the labor movement and to do our part in creating greater access and opportunity for our workers and their families.
