From September, all hourly paid employees at Aldi’s Falkirk area stores – which include Polmont – will receive an increase of 40p an hour on their current hourly rate, taking Aldi’s minimum pay rates for store assistants to a sector-leading £10.50 an hour nationally.

Aldi stated it also offers paid breaks, which, for the average store worker is now worth more than £830 a year.

"Their outstanding efforts have ensured our customers continue to have access to fresh affordable food, every single day.”
