Kroger Grocery Stores Give Bonus to Hourly Workers

As a means of thanking their employees for their essential work during the COVID-19 outbreaks, one of the largest grocery store chains in America is offering a “hero bonus” to all of their hourly workers.

Kroger, which is the United States’ largest supermarket by revenue and the second-largest general retailer, announced this week that they would be giving all hourly frontline grocery, supply chain, manufacturing, pharmacy, and call center associates a temporary raise of $2 premium above their standard base rate of pay.

The bonus will be applied to hours worked from March 29th through April 18th. The premium will also be disbursed weekly to ensure associates have access to additional cash.
