Bank of America Ups Minimum Wage Once More on Way to $25 an Hour

  • The latest increase, to $22, keeps bank on track for 2025 goal
  • Hikes in recent years have lifted base pay from $15 in 2017

Bank of America Corp. is increasing its minimum hourly wage to $22, taking another step toward a goal of paying $25 by 2025, as employers beef up compensation and benefits in a tight labor market.

The move, announced Monday, bumps pay up from $21, a level the firm had enacted last year within its planned schedule. A $22 wage translates to a full-time annualized salary of $45,000. It continues a series of hikes lifting the firm’s base pay from $15 in 2017.
