Instacart said it will provide some financial assistance for its in-store workers and independent contractors. The food delivery company is offering a $25 “vaccine support stipend” for vaccinated in-store employees and independent contractors.
Independent shoppers will have had to shop and deliver at least five batches for the company in the past 30 days in order to qualify for the stipend.
The supermarket chain said it also plans to spend another $50 million to reward its associates, which include a $100 store credit and 1,000 fuel points to its hourly front line grocery, supply chain, manufacturing, pharmacy and call center associates.
Similar to Kroger, Publix said it would give its associates a $125 Publix gift card for it workers who get the full Covid-19 vaccine.
