Many companies offer Tet bonuses equal to at least one month’s salary. Pou Yuen Vietnam Co., Ltd. gives its workers a bonus worth one to two months’ salary; while laborers at Non Son Fashion Co., Ltd., receive a 13th month bonus as well as the Tet bonus.

Along with Tet bonuses, local businesses said that they will provide disadvantaged workers with free coach tickets to travel home for the holiday and Tet gifts.
