A Nurse’s Video Went Viral After She Said Working at Target Pays More Than Her Job

A nurse shared a video on TikTok to address that some Target stores have supposedly increased their starting pay to $24 per hour.

In the viral video, she puts away her stethoscope and mouths “that’ll do it”, hinting that she’s done with working as a nurse.

Because the video garnered so many views, people shared their thoughts about it.

Some folks called the $24 per hour wage. One said, “me, as a Target employee, wondering where my 24 per hour is.”

Another added, “Up to $24/r only in certain cities and certain positions. Target also doesn’t guarantee full time hours.”

One individual made it clear where they stand: “As someone who works at Target, it’s a PR stunt. Don’t believe a word they say.”

But others believe the numbers. One person said, “To think I started as an RN on an understaffed med surgery floor for less. More than what I make.. bye medical field.”

An article by NPR confirmed that Target store wages are $15-$24 so the $24 is the high end of the scale.
