If you work for this company, you will be incentivized to get the jab.
It is now being reported that employees of Delta Airlines, who refuse to get vaccinated, will now face a $200 monthly surcharge on their healthcare plan from November 1st.
According to Fox Business, CEO Ed Bastian insisted that it was a necessary new policy and cited that the average cost for someone who gets COVID-19 is around $50,000 in medical expenses.
“This surcharge will be necessary to address the financial risk the decision to not vaccinate is creating for our company,” Bastian stated.
Bastian further noted that all employees of Delta Airlines who were hospitalized due to the delta variant were people who were either not vaccinated or only partially vaccinated.
Bastian further claimed that the “aggressiveness of the variant means we need to get many more of our people vaccinated, and as close to 100% as possible.”
Delta’s chief health officer, Dr. Henry Ting, called the variant strain of the coronavirus a “heat-seeking missile” that transmits mostly through people who choose not to be vaccinated.
