Essential Workers Are Losing Their ‘Hazard Pay’ Even As the Pandemic Rages On
(Bloomberg) — The hazard pay is disappearing. The hazard is not. Some essential employees across the U.S. have received bonuses or pay bumps to compensate for the risk that comes with clocking in at supermarkets, hospitals and other crowded workplaces during a pandemic. Now companies are walking back those wage increases, even as the threat of Covid-19 lingers. This weekend, Kroger Co. is rescinding the $2 raise it gave to store and warehouse workers. Target Corp. and Amazon.com Inc. will follow later this month, with other firms charting similar moves. The planned cutbacks have rankled unions, employees and customer...

The so-called health bonus is a 4.6% increase from the last union contract. The policy runs counter to recommendations by heal...
