Convenience store operator Lawson says it plans to raise employees’ base salary for the first time in 12 years.
As a result of the labor management negotiations, Lawson decided to raise the monthly salary by 3,000 yen on average, which is equivalent to 1% of an employee's current pay, Sankei Shimbun reported Monday.
Lawson said it will also continue to provide special bonuses to support child-care for women employees in their 20s to 40s. The policy was implemented last year.
Lawson said its decision is in line with the government’s expectation that increased consumption will revitalize the economy.© Japan Today
