H-E-B announced that all hourly store, manufacturing, warehouse and transportation partners will receive a pay increase of $2/hour as Texas Proud Pay From March 16th, to April 12th, 2020.
The decision to increase the pay of all hourly employees is a result of the increased hard work required to continuously stock shelves and handle the abnormally high amounts of customers panic buying due to the coronavirus.
H-E-B wanted to recognize the hard work of their employees during the difficult time. A viral Facebook post from H-E-B made the announcement.
As stores have been sold out from essential items, H-E-B has worked hard to ensure that Texans get what they need.
