The bonuses, along with an annual pay raise for our hourly field associates, are included in their March 8th paycheck. Between Q4 performance bonuses, tenure-based bonuses, pay increases and recent paid time off (PTO) cash outs, more than $1 billion flowed to U.S. hourly associates during the months of February and March.
