WV Walmart employees receiving over $5 million in combined bonuses

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WDTV) -- West Virginia Walmart employees are receiving over $5 million in combined bonuses.

The company says the bonuses are coming from $560 million in total cash bonuses being received around the nation.

They say that over $160 million of the bonuses are based on their stores’ Q4 performance, and over $400 million in one-time cash bonuses are tied to the recently passed tax law.

The bonuses, along with a raise for hourly field associates, take effect Thursday.
