It seems when the big retail domino falls, the smaller ones are soon to follow — in this case, that's retail giant TJX Companies.
"The company says it's going to be joining with a handful of retailers who say they are going to be permanently raising wages."
TJX is the owner of retail chains T.J.Maxx, Marshalls, HomeGoods and a few others. It claims it will raise pay for all its full- and part-time employees to $9 an hour starting in June. In 2016, any employee who has worked at the company's stores for more than six months will get another pay raise to $10 an hour.
