The Great Earplug Saga :

So, over 30,000 military service members and veterans stepped forward. Not in unison, but certainly in harmony, claiming these earplugs are not the silent saviors they thought. 

The $6 Billion Finale:

In a grand finale, 3M plans to shower $5 billion in cash and $1 billion in 3M common stock on the deserving claimants from 2023 to 2029. 

And remember, this is part of an agreement that already gifted $250 million to 30,000 claimants last December. 

Because nothing says ‘happy holidays’ like a hefty compensation check, isn’t it?!
