Walmart stated Thursday that it would spend $365 million to pay out cash bonuses to its hourly personnel for doing the job for the duration of the coronavirus pandemic. 

The reward will be $300 for complete-time hourly associates and $150 for element-time hourly associates. Each individual hourly associate used by the company as of March 1 will qualify, and the bonuses will spend out on April 2.

The  firm will also spend retail outlet, club and provide chain associates $180 million in their up coming scheduled bonuses a month early. 

Walmart is the greatest grocer in the U.S. and has viewed a raise in profits as customers flock to retailers to stock up on meals, toilet paper, hand sanitizer and other products amid rising cases of the coronavirus. 

Walmart reported it is also using the services of 150,000 new associates through the end of May perhaps to work in outlets, clubs, distribution centers and achievement centers in response to increasing need owing to the epidemic.
