June 23, 2021 – Brainerd, MN – CJK Group, Inc. has announced that it has permanently raised the starting hourly wage to $15 for U.S. workers. The wage increase is a welcomed benefit to current employees as well as strengthening opportunities to attract new hires.
The current labor shortage in America and the company’s tenacity to be an employer of choice served as catalysts toward the decision to increase the minimum wage. To remain strong and competitive in the marketplace and aggressively expand in the government sector, CJK Group recognizes the need to continue to position itself as a preferred workplace.
Rather than simply providing jobs, CJK Group is proud to offer its employees careers. The length of tenure at each of its companies is truly astounding, with some team members working diligently for 40+ years. This investment in raising the minimum wage for U.S. workers is another important step that CJK Group is taking to continue to add the best and the brightest job seekers to its already highly talented team.
