Dollar General will pay employees to get the COVID-19 vaccine

Dollar General employees are being offered an incentive to get the COVID-19 vaccination - the company will give them four hours pay.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the retailer is among the first large U.S. employers who have offered incentives to encourage their employees to take the COVID-19 vaccine - Dollar General employs 157,000 people. Its move to incentivize staff could be interpreted as a sign that companies with essential workers view "mass inoculation" as crucial in crushing the pandemic.
