H-E-B Turns Texas Proud Pay Into Permanent Wage Increase
Employees are once again singing the praises of one of the state's most beloved chains after receiving what is being called the largest pay increase in H-E-B history according to a statement online.
KSAT reports that the hourly pay increases provided by H-E-B to its employees as part of the Texas Proud Pay program will now become a permanent wage increase!
It all started with a $2 pay increase back on March 16th which was then extended through June 21st. On Monday, H-E-B announced they would transition this program to long-term employees as the staff continues to work on the front line during the pandemic.

H-E-B has been one of the most transparent operations in Texas during the pandemic by allowing customers to see how many employees at various locations have tested positive for the coronavirus. So far 40 different H-E-B locations have had employees test positive. The company offers extended paid medical leave for employees in such instances.
Stores like Walmart and Target who are also in the San Antonio area have opted not to release any information about employees who have tested positive for the virus and have left any official announcements about positive cases to local health departments.
