(CNN) - Taco Bell is starting 2020 with some new perks for workers.

For the first time ever, employees will be eligible for paid sick time.

Workers at corporate-owned locations will be eligible for 24 hours of paid sick time a year and managers at some restaurants will start pulling in six figure salaries.

That's a big boost because most supervisors in that role made between $50,000 and $80,000 previously.

The fast food company says it hopes those benefits will help keep employees happy and increase retention.
