Walmart announced Thursday that its workers in South Carolina will receive a combined $10.5 million in cash bonuses starting this week.
Overall, the company is issuing $560 million nationwide in fourth-quarter performance-based bonuses and tenure-based one-time cash bonuses to more than 890,000 workers.
Walmart said the bonuses, along with an annual pay raise for hourly associates, will be included in their March 8 paychecks
Walmart also announced earlier this year plans to increase the starting wage for all hourly associates to at least $11, expand maternity and parental leave benefits, and provide a one-time cash bonus for eligible associates of up to $1,000.
The company said associates earn quarterly bonuses as part of an incentive plan to reward associates in stores that achieve sales and customer service goals.
