Kroger is the latest retail chain to offer to pay workers to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

The midwestern grocery chain will pay employees $100 if they get vaccinated.  It will also pay out over $50 million in bonuses to workers as a thank-you for working the front lines during the pandemic.

Other grocery chains like Trader Joe’s, Aldi, and Dollar General are also paying employees to get the vaccine.

Should all grocery and retail chains be doing this?  How have your shopping habits changed during the pandemic?
