Whirlpool Corporation, which has a plant in Findlay and employs about 10,000 people at five facilities in Ohio, is trying to get more of its employees vaccinated.
Whirlpool is offering to pay workers $1,000 who get vaccinated against COVID-19.
It comes as the Biden administration prepares an emergency rule that will require large companies, like Whirlpool, to ensure their entire workforce is vaccinated – or subject them to weekly testing.
Whirlpool’s stepped-up bonus will also apply to workers who were previously vaccinated.
Whirlpool’s five plants are in Findlay, Clyde, Ottawa, Greenville and Marion.
