Old Navy Will Pay Employees To Volunteer At Polls On Election Day
Old Navy is doing their part to make sure that their employees can go out and vote. Per the New York Post, the clothing brand is offering to pay employees a full day’s rate if they go out and volunteer as poll workers on voting day.
In a press release, Nancy Green, the Head of Old Navy, said, “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.”
Old Navy’s parent company, GAP, is partnering with Civic Alliance and Power the Polls to assist with this effort. The groups hope to find an additional 250,000 poll workers so polling locations can stay open.
Old Navy also announced on Instagram that they are also offering employees up to 3 paid hours off to vote.
