According to a release by Walmart, today, more than 890,000 Walmart U.S. associates are receiving a share of more than $560 million in total cash bonuses, including:

  • More than $160 million in cash bonuses based on their stores’ Q4 performance, and
  • More than $400 million in one-time cash bonuses tied to recent changes in tax law.

In Louisiana, officials tell us Walmart associates are receiving approximately $13.7 million in combined bonuses; there are 37,063 associates in the state.

The bonuses, along with an annual pay raise for hourly field associates, are included in their March 8 paycheck. 

In January, Walmart also announced plans to increase the starting wage for all hourly associates in the U.S. 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. A new adoption assistance benefit of $5,000 per child – announced in conjunction with the other changes – went into effect on February 1.
