Since Hurricane Maria swept through Puerto Rico on September 20, much of the island still has no electricity. Because of this, many businesses there are still closed. But one company is continuing to pay their employees, despite their doors remaining closed due to hurricane damage.
TJX, parent company of TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and HomeGoods is still sending out paychecks to workers even though their stores on the island aren’t open. “Based on the devastating situation in Puerto Rico, we can confirm that we have continued to pay our TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and HomeGoods associates on the island,” a spokesperson explains. “We believe it is the right thing to do under these circumstances.”
