Walmart and Sam’s Club employees are getting another round of cash bonuses in June.

The total is worth more than $390 million to reward hourly employees for keeping up with the demand due to the pandemic caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, commonly known as the novel coronavirus.

$300 for full-time workers and $150 for part-time, hourly and temporary associates.

The extra bonus for working through the pandemic applies to those who work in stores, clubs, supply chain facilities and offices.

The company has previously announced they are hiring another 200,000 employees to keep up with demand.
