BENTONVILLE, ARK. (WCMH/WSPA) — Walmart says it has given many of its U.S. workers a bonus after strong fourth-quarter sales growth.

Workers received the bonuses in paychecks issued Thursday.

Walmart employees in South Carolina received more than $4.2 million in bonuses.  

“Our associates’ hard work makes the difference in our stores’ performance. Walmart is investing in
associates and creating opportunities for good career growth. Our pay and bonus increases are
a way of thanking our people across South Carolina and sharing in success together,” Sean Real,
regional general manager of Walmart’s South Carolina stores, said in a statement.

Both full and part-time associates are eligible for cash bonuses based on store performance.
