Employees who have been working at Walmart Canada throughout the pandemic are set to get a financial boost before the holiday.

In an email to Narcity, the company said that it would be providing all of its full-time employees with an additional $250 on December 11.

In addition, part-time workers will receive $150, with managers and coaches also getting a bonus.

$250 Appreciation bonus for full-time employees

Walmart Canada notes that this means more than 85,000 employees will be receiving some extra cash before Christmas.

Earlier in the year, the company paid its full-time and part-time employees a "March appreciation bonus" of $200 and $100, respectively.

Workers also received an extra $2 an hour during the months of April and May.

Loblaws and Sobeys introduced similar programs early in the pandemic, but both programs eventually came to an end.

However, Sobeys recently brought back increased pay for employees who were working in regions going through a lockdown.

Hailing from Quebec, 15-year-old Olivier Rioux clocks in at a neck-ache-inducing 7 feet, 5.33 inches tall, which has earned him a place in the 2022 edition of the Guinness World Records as the world's tallest living male teenager. That makes him taller than any of the Toronto Raptors players.

Justin Trudeau Just Promised To Crack Down On 'Mobs' Protesting In Health Care Settings

If elected, he says the Liberals would move to criminalize blocking health care buildings.

With anti-vaccine protests taking place all over the country on September 13, the federal leaders have finally weighed in and Justin Trudeau is not holding back.

"The Liberal Party of Canada, if reelected to form government, will make it a criminal offence to block access to buildings that provide health care," said Trudeau while in Vancouver on September 13. "Whether that's hospitals, clinics, abortion clinics, pharmacies, testing centres, it is not OK that across the country, hospitals are having to put up barricades today to manage the mobs coming their way."
