Live mas: Taco Bell will start paying managers $100,000 salaries

Taco Bell says managers at some restaurants will start pulling in six-figure salaries, up from the $50,000 to $80,000 that managers currently make.

The news comes in an effort to try and hold onto workers.

The company does not know how many managers at its 450 locations will get the salaries, or how long it will offer the higher salaries.

The exact start date is unknown, but the company says some time this year. It adds that the higher salaries will be offered at company-owned locations in the Northeast and Midwest.

Taco Bell isn't the first fast-food restaurant to offer managers six-figure salaries. California-based fast-food chain In-N-Out Burger has been paying its managers $100,000 and over for at least the past decade.

According to the fast food franchise, employees will also be eligible for paid sick time for the first time ever.

The company says workers at corporate-owned locations will be eligible for 24 hours of paid sick time a year.
