The Buffalo News - - BUSINESS - – Stephen T. Wat­son – Matt Glynn Tar­get bumps min­i­mum hourly wage up to $13 – Star Tri­bune (Minneapolis) – Sa­man­tha Christ­mann

Adrian’s Cus­tard & Beef had a soft-serve open­ing for its ex­panded lo­ca­tion on Grand Is­land on Fri­day af­ter­noon. Pun in­tended. The sea­sonal des­ti­na­tion will serve ice cream for the next few days be­fore open­ing with a full menu by Wed­nes­day, owner ToniMarie Aman­tia said.

Adrian’s new restaurant at 2352 Grand Is­land Blvd. is across from the site on Grand Is­land Boule­vard where it served choco­late-vanilla twist cus­tard and roast beef on weck for 30 years.

Aman­tia in late Jan­uary bought the Town Cafe, which closed late last year. The new build­ing is 3,500 square feet and in­cludes a din­ing room and bar area.

Adrian’s em­ploy­ees will train with ice cream-only ser­vice from noon to 3 p.m. Satur­day, with food for friends and fam­ily this week­end.

Catholic Health’s Sul­li­van named to trade coun­cil

Mark Sul­li­van, pres­i­dent and CEO of Catholic Health Sys­tem, was named to the Amer­i­can Hospi­tal As­so­ci­a­tion’s Sec­tion for Health Care Sys­tems Coun­cil.

The 25-mem­ber coun­cil rep­re­sents the AHA’s health sys­tem mem­bers, which com­prise about 65 per­cent of AHA hos­pi­tals. The coun­cil ad­vises the AHA on health sys­tem strate­gies.

MINNEAPOLIS _ Tar­get Corp. said Thurs­day it is bump­ing its base pay by one dol­lar so that its low­est­paid work­ers will earn at least $13 an hour start­ing in June.

It is an in­cre­men­tal boost on the way to Tar­get’s pledge to pay all of its work­ers a min­i­mum of $15 an hour by the end of 2020.

The com­pany de­clined to say how many work­ers would be af­fected by the pay hike, say­ing only that it would be in the “tens of thou­sands.”

Re­tail­ers are com­pet­ing for la­bor as the econ­omy stays rel­a­tively strong. Job re­quire­ments are shift­ing as re­tail­ers process more on­line sales and stores become ship­ping hubs and pick-up spots for cus­tomers who don’t want to wait for their on­line or­ders to ar­rive in the mail.

Other re­tail­ers have be­gun of­fer­ing a $15 base wage. Amazon hit the mark last Oc­to­ber ahead of the hol­i­day hir­ing. In March, ware­house re­tailer Costco an­nounced its sec­ond wage hike in less than a year to raise base hourly pay to $15.
