Allegheny Health Network will boost minimum wage to $15 in 3 years

In an effort to remain competitive for workers, Pittsburgh-based Allegheny Health Network will increase its minimum wage to $15 per hour by 2021, according to The Tribune Live.

The eight-hospital network employs 19,000 people and recently started a 401(k) retirement savings plan for its employees.

The decision to increase wages "reflects the network's ongoing assessment of the market and commitment to providing a highly competitive compensation and benefits packages for employees at every level," an AHN statement reads, according to Tribune Live.

Pittsburgh-based UPMC, AHN's biggest rival, announced in 2016 that it would implement a $15-per-hour minimum wage by next year.
