Aldi Becomes Second Grocery Chain To Pay Workers To Get Vaccine

German supermarket chain Aldi, which operates over 1,900 stores in the U.S., is giving workers a paid incentive to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

Employees who say yes to the vaccine will receive four hours of extra pay.

Aldi joins Trader Joe’s as the only two national grocery chains to provide this offer. Trader Joe’s, which is owned by Aldi Nord, is paying workers two hours to get the vaccine. Aldi is owned by Aldi Sud, which is a legally separate business from Trader Joe’s parent company.

The two grocers join Dollar General and Instacart as the first companies to announce paid incentives for vaccination.
