Old Navy Store Employees Will Get Paid to Work as Poll Workers on November 3rd
Old Navy is making a difference!
Due to the coronavirus, America is facing a record shortage of poll workers. In response, Old Navy announced that it will pay its store employees to work the polls on Election Day in an effort to encourage them to serve their communities.
“We are constantly inspired by our store teams, with their passion for community work and fostering a sense of belonging both in and outside of our store walls. Every voice in this country matters and deserves to be heard at the polls, and if we at Old Navy can be even a small part of making that process more accessible to the communities we call home, we are on board,” said Nancy Green, Head of Old Navy.
Old Navy employees are eligible for eight hours of pay even if they receive compensation from their local jurisdiction. Poll workers will be trained and receive PPE (personal protective equipment).
