Ellison, Lowe's president and CEO.

This is the sixth bonus payment, bringing Lowe's total support of associates during the pandemic to more than $775 million. Additionally, in April, front-line associates received a temporary $2 per hour wage increase.

Throughout the pandemic, the company says it has hired more than 155,000 people through its seasonal hiring process, with many of them transitioning into permanent roles.
