Walmart will reward employees with perfect attendance

(CNN) - Walmart workers will have a new incentive to show up to work every day.

The retail giant announced plans to give bonuses to its employees who are not absent.

Officials with Walmart say the goal is to reward those who come to work every day.
Right now employees can have up to nine-absences per every six month period.
The new policy will trim that to five-days.
In addition to that, employees will get six "Protected PTO" says every year, which can be used for sicknesses and emergencies.
The "Protected PTO" doesn't count against attendance tallies.
This means entry-level workers can earn nearly $600 extra per quarter.
Supervisors can earn about $900 in that time frame.
Walmart is the largest private employer in the country.
