Walmart to hire 1.5 lakh workers to cope with demand due to virus

Mar 20, 2020 18:00 IST

Walmart plans to hire 1.5 lakh people to meet increased demand during the coronavirus crisis and will pay out $365 million in bonuses, the US retail giant said. The hiring drive comes as travel restrictions and lockdown measures in various US states and cities to curb the spread of the virus have led people to stock up on basic foodstuffs and order more online. Amazon has also announced plans to recruit an additional 1 lakh workers in the United States to cope with the surge in internet shopping.
