Since the pandemic started, Lowe’s has reportedly been good to its employees. The company has given out bonuses and even increased pay for full-time, part-time, and seasonal associates by $2 per hour during the month of April. But now? They’ve announced plans to give another $100-million of bonuses to support employees.
Full-time hourly workers will get $300, and part-time and seasonal workers will receive $150 on August 21st. These additional bonuses bring Lowe’s total commitment to employees and communities during the pandemic to close to $600-million.
"We are incredibly proud of how our stores, supply chain and corporate associates have faced this pandemic head-on to solve challenges in our communities and care for our customers,” explains Lowe’s president and CEO Marvin R. Ellison. “We are grateful for their resilience, teamwork and ongoing commitment to safety, and are pleased to share this additional bonus to help with childcare, remote-schooling and other general expenses they are managing during these tough times."
Nice job, boss. You get the slow clap!
