Amazon will give $500 million in one-time bonuses to qualified front-line, Whole Foods and delivery-service employees for their efforts during the coronavirus pandemic, the company announced Monday.

Senior Vice President Dave Clark told employees in a note that those who worked from June 1 to June 30 are qualified to receive a “thank you bonus,” according to an Amazon statement. The bonuses range from $150 for Amazon Flex drivers who worked more than ten hours, to $3,000 for Amazon‘s delivery-service-partner owners.

“Our front-line operations teams have been on an incredible journey over the last few months, and we want to show our appreciation with a special one-time Thank-You bonus totaling over $500 million,” Clark’s note told employees.

Part-time Amazon, Whole Foods and delivery-service drivers will receive $250 while full-time employees are expected to receive $500. All Whole Foods and front-line Amazon leaders qualify for a $1,000 bonus, and delivery-service partners qualify for the highest bonus, $3,000, Clark’s note told employees.

Amazon previously raised its front-line workers’ wages by two dollars per hour and added 100,000 new employees in March, the Wall Street Journal reported. Amazon’s sales have skyrocketed since coronavirus lock-down measures forced buyers to resort to online shopping.

When asked for additional comment, a spokesperson for Amazon directed the Daily Caller News Foundation to Clark’s statement.
