Aetna’s competitors have no plans to follow its lead by raising employees’ minimum wage to $16 an hour while also improving their health benefits, according to those interviewed at the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference in San Francisco.All Aetna employees, starting in April, will earn at least $16 an hour, or about $33,000 a year for full-time workers. About 5,700 Aetna employees, most of whom work in customer service or other administrative roles, will see a pay raise as a result.
