There are thousands of Americans who will soon see bonus stimulus checks from their employers as inflation continues to rise at a rapid rate.
These bonuses are subject to tax and given to employees as an added bonus to their salary.
Some places even offer sign-on bonuses for those looking for gainful employment.
Here are 3 cities and states sending bonus stimulus checks to employees
Minnesota is sending stimulus checks to workers under a plan that costs around $500 million dollars.

In order to be eligible, workers need to have been employed for at least 120 hours in the state in a front line position.
Employment must have been between March 15, 2020 and June 30, 2021.
If couples were both employed in direct patient care, their income cannot exceed $349,999.
Individuals income cannot exceed $175,000.
You will need to apply for the bonus when applications open.
August, Georgia is paying their front line workers a bonus of $500 for full time city employees and $250 for part time.
If you were working in public safety, garbage collecting, or other public facing jobs, you’ll see double the bonus.
Connecticut has approved a budget that would award stimulus bonuses to employees but details haven’t been released.
If the bill goes ahead, frontline workers could see bonuses between $200 and $1,000 each.
