Delta Announces Pay Raises and Starting Wage Increase to Boost Employee Compensation

Delta Air Lines has recently announced a substantial increase in wages for its employees globally, setting a new minimum starting wage at $19 per hour and implementing a 5% pay raise for eligible staff. This adjustment is part of a broader $500 million annual investment in its workforce, following a significant $1.4 billion payout in profit-sharing bonuses earlier this year.

Comprehensive Compensation Enhancements

Delta's CEO, Ed Bastian, revealed in an internal memo that these wage increases are set to take effect from June 1, 2024. This move aligns with Delta's strategy of maintaining industry-leading compensation to support its operational excellence and customer service standards. Since 2022, Delta has increased compensation by 20-25% across its largest frontline workgroups, reinforcing its commitment to investing in its people.

Long-term Commitment to Employee Financial Wellness

In addition to the immediate pay raises, Delta emphasizes its ongoing dedication to employee financial well-being through various programs. The airline offers a robust profit-sharing scheme that has distributed over $11 billion since 2007, with 2024's first-quarter accruals already surpassing previous years. Furthermore, Delta provides competitive 401(k) contributions, operational goal rewards, free financial coaching, and more, ensuring comprehensive support for its employees' financial security.
