Kroger To End Coronavirus 'Hero Pay'

Kroger announced it hired 100,000 workers since March, as grocery store demands surge amid the coronavirus pandemic.

They've reportedly spent $700 million in associate pay, including its 'Hero' bonus of $2 per hour.

However, Kroger said the bonus will end in May and that has sparked outrage among the staff.
