Wal-Mart Employees Get a $2 Billion Pat on The Back

 

Chief Executive Mike Duke announced today that Wal-Mart will be giving $2 billion to its workers.  It includes $933.6 million in the form of bonuses for hourly workers and another $788.8 million in profit sharing and 401k, as well as millions in merchandise discounts.

 

This is an annual incentive program to reward associates for their work.  Last year, $1.8 billion went out.  The amount is based on the success of business for the previous year.  Wal-Mart gained 7.2% from its previous year.

 

When averaged out, each qualified employee should receive about $933.60.  Wal-Mart is looking to expand their business along with its sister company, Sam's Club.
