Dollar General To Offer Employees Pay For Getting COVID-19 Vaccine

Dollar General is giving its workers four hours of pay to get vaccinated against the coronavirus. 

The company says the offer is currently only for frontline workers, but they do plan to extend it to its distribution and transportation teams. 

They say this offer is only an incentive and they will not require workers to get the shots. 

Dollar General is one of the first big companies to offer an incentive for employees to get immunized. Many big businesses are believed to be waiting to offer incentives until they figure out when their workers will be able to receive the vaccine.
