Raises & bonuses coming to Texoma

TEXOMA - Hundreds of employees all over Texoma are getting a $1 raise starting next month. 

Walmart is increasing its starting wage rate for hourly employees in the U.S. to $11 an hour following the passage of new tax legislation.

The company is also expanding its maternity and parental leave benefits, and providing a one time cash bonus for eligible employees of as much as $1,000.  

Walmart will create a new benefit that provides financial assistance to employees who are looking to adopt a child, giving them as much as $5,000 per child to cover expenses such as adoption agency fees, translation fees and legal costs.

Walmart's Director of Communications out of San Antonio says each of the three Walmart Supercenters in Wichita Falls probably employ around three hundred,  and with other stores throughout the area as well, this is very big news for Texoma.

Anne Hatfield:  "It results in happier associates, more productive people and folks who want to better serve our customers, but it also helps them better provide for their families, not only with the wage increase, the cash bonuses, but also the parental leave benefits, child adoption credit. These are really important benefits for families."

The bonuses will be determined by an employee's length of service at the company. 

Workers with more than twenty years experience will qualify to receive the full $1,000.  

Bonuses for other employees will be tiered according to their years of service. 

Company officials say they're also accessing other potential additional investments for employees that could come after the new tax laws. 

As far as 63 Sam's Club stores closing across the nation, Hatfield says Those in Texoma will remain open.
