You hear that? That’s the sound of IKEA workers cheering — and no, it’s not because they finally put together the Billy Bookcase. The Swedish furniture giant just announced it will boost its minimum wage from $10.76 to $11.87 an hour. That’s a 10 percent raise. (For the record, the federal minimum wage is $7.25.)
