Walmart workers will soon have a new way to boost their paychecks. The company plans to give bonuses to its employees who don’t call out often.
Walmart officials say the goal is to reward those who come to work every day. Right now, Walmart employees will have to nine absences per every six month period.
The new policy will trim that to five days.
In addition to that, employees will get six ‘protected PTO’ days every year which can be used for sickness and emergencies.
The protected PTO doesn’t count against attendance tallies, meaning entry-level workers can earn nearly $600 extra per quarter.
Supervisors can earn about $900 in that time frame.
Walmart is the largest employer in the country.
