Walmart announced it will hire 150,000 new workers to meet rising demand in its stores during the coronavirus outbreak.

In a press release published on Thursday, the retail giant said, "As part of responding to the current environment, Walmart is also hiring 150,000 new associates through the end of May to work in stores, clubs, distribution centers and fulfillment centers."

The company also said Thursday that it would move up quarterly bonuses for its employees to get them money sooner during the pandemic.
