₹73,000 incentive to vaccinated employees US-based application maker Whirlpool is offering employees $1,000( ₹73,541) cash bonuses to get vaccinated, increasing its existing incentive as Covid-19 cases continue to climb nationwide.
Whirlpool previously offered its 27,000 U.S. workers $200 cash bonuses in May to get the shot. The fivefold increase was announced as vaccination rates lag in Michigan, with only 51% of the population fully inoculated.
A Whirlpool spokesperson confirmed the $1,000 incentive to Bloomberg News on Monday. The company announced the expanded cash bonus to employees last week, the New York Times reported earlier.
