Walmart shows their employees appreciation by giving them a bonus of $180 million in total.
“We paid nearly $180 million in cash bonuses to hourly associates, with more to come next month on our originally scheduled quarterly bonus payout date,” the company wrote in a statement.
Walmart has taken extra preventive measures, in an effort to keep the work environment safe.
“Our focus on our associates’ health and safety continues. We’re conducting health screens and daily temperature checks and providing masks and gloves to all associates. We’ve also added sneeze guards at registers, limited the number of customers in stores, installed social distancing signage and instituted sanitation protocols.”
Aside giving employees bonuses, they’ve also hired 200,000 people.
“In addition, we’ve fulfilled our commitment to hire 200,000 associates in our stores, clubs, distribution centers and fulfillment centers, since March 19.”
At a time where more than 20 million people have filed for unemployment, this is truly a blessing.
