Walmart announced Thursday that it has hired 200,000 workers across the U.S. amid the coronavirus outbreak.
Company executive Donna Morris said in a statement that Walmart was “humbled” to have been able to hire thousands for part-time or full-time positions during the pandemic, at a time when many businesses across the country have shuttered, forcing millions into unemployment.
“[W]e’ve fulfilled our commitment to hire 200,000 associates in our stores, clubs, distribution centers and fulfillment centers, since March 19. We are humbled to be able to give an opportunity to so many Americans to work, often serving as a bridge for employment, while helping Walmart better serve customers during this time of increased demand,” Morris said.
The company had initially planned to make 150,000 new hires by the end of May.
