TOKYO -- U.S. chipmaker Micron Technology will make one-time cash payments to two-thirds of its global workforce as part of a $35 million effort to support employees, suppliers and local economies amid the coronavirus pandemic, Nikkei has learned.

The payments to roughly 25,000 workers will differ from country to country, but American employees who earn less than $100,000 a year will receive $1,000, for example.
