Southwest Airlines has become the latest carrier to incentivize its employees to get the coronavirus vaccine as the highly contagious delta variant continues to threaten the industry's recovery.
The Texas-based carrier is offering two days of pay for employees who are or will become fully vaccinated by Nov. 15, a Southwest spokesperson told FOX Business. However, employees must also share their vaccination status with the carrier.
Employees who are not fully vaccinated by Nov. 16 will no longer be eligible to receive the carrier's quarantine pay.
