As the coronavirus pandemic leaves millions unemployed, James Corden and Trevor Noah want to show loyalty to their employees.

Corden and Noah are both personally paying the salaries of their "Late Late Show" and "Daily Show" staffers who have been furloughed during the COVID-19 pandemic, reported Variety.

The host of the "Daily Show" will be paying 25 crew members until "production begins to ramp back up in the television industry."

Corden will be signing the paychecks for around 60 staffers, which will "likely to be at least mid-five figures a week."

Last month, Ellen DeGeneres' employees were upset with the lack of transparency and communication from the production of her daytime talk show.

While Ellen does her best to make sure everything is "business as usual" in front of the cameras on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," things behind-the-scenes are a different story.

Two sources associated with the show, who chose to remain anonymous, reached out to Variety to express the crew's frustration with the production's poor communication about working hours, pay, and the program's new remote show.

The show's main stage crew, which is roughly 30 employees, was reportedly kept in the dark about hours and payment for more than a month.
