Spectrum is giving a boost to its workforce.
It has 3,000 jobs open, and the company announced that it would be moving its own minimum wage to $18 an hour. It’s part of the company’s effort to get to $20 an hour by next year.
They said that all current and newly-hired employees will earn at least $18 an hour. They will also receive important benefits, like paid leave, medical, life, and disability.
“Charter is a place where employees can continuously learn and progress in their development,” said Tom Rutledge, CEO of the company. “Building, selling and servicing an advanced broadband network, conventional and streaming video, with fixed and wireless mobile products for home and business, creates ongoing career opportunities.”
The company was among the first to move to $15 an hour as a starting wage in 2018.
