Target announced on Monday that it will give all of its hourly workers a $500 bonus as a thank-you for their efforts amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"To show our gratitude as we wrap a year unlike any other, Target is giving $500 bonuses to all hourly team members in stores, distribution centers and our headquarters and field-based offices," the retailer said in a press release.

Store directors and other salaried leaders at the company will also be getting bonuses ranging between $1,000 and $2,000, according to the release.


This will mark the fifth time the retail giant has recognized its employees with a monetary thank-you since the beginning of the pandemic.

The company also said that it has committed to moving to a $15 starting wage, according to the release.

In July 2020, Target began to increase employees' minimum wage from $13.
