After earning record quarterly profits, Delta will issue a raise to its approximately 80,000 employees next year. Workers who deal directly with customers will get up to 3% more money effective April 1. This follows previous rounds of employee pay raises at the airline. Other employees will receive increases that vary based on performance, among other factors. As a result of the health care reform, premiums will go up next year. However, Delta will cover 85% of the $100 million in additional costs.
