Fifth Third to Raise Minimum Hourly Wage to $20 on July 4

Business

Fifth Third Bancorp today announced it will raise its minimum wage to $20 per hour beginning July 4. Concurrently, the Bank will provide a wage adjustment for its first four job levels that are above the Bank’s new minimum wage. In total, more than 40% of the Bank’s workforce will receive a midyear compensation increase.

“This wage increase is simply the right thing to do. It will make a meaningful difference in the lives of our team members, who are the face of Fifth Third and who are impacted disproportionately by rising costs of living,” said Tim Spence, president of Fifth Third Bancorp and the recently announced CEO effective July 5, 2022. “Under the leadership of Greg Carmichael, our CEO, Fifth Third has been a leader in increasing our employees’ wages. Fifth Third led the industry in 2018 by increasing to $15 and was among the first to increase to $18. We are carrying our leadership forward with this additional wage and midyear pay increase. We are incredibly proud to be among the top quartile of our peers for employee retention according to leading research, and we believe our competitive compensation and benefits are essential to our ability to continue to attract and retain the best and brightest talent to serve and support our valued customers.”

In January 2018, the Bank raised its minimum hourly rate from $12 to $15. That was followed in October 2019 by an increase from $15 to $18 per hour. Notably, the new $20 minimum hourly wage will benefit nearly 95% of employees in retail branches and operations support functions, including customer contact centers.
