President Obama chose Costco as an example that companies can raise minimum wages and still flourish. The Washington-based company pays its workers an average of $20.89 an hour, a significantly higher rate than other retail chains, and it appears to be paying off. Per employee, Costco generates $620,000 of revenue and a profit of $10,625.
