Old Navy is taking a different approach from most other companies when it comes to encouraging their employees to take on an active role on Election Day.

The retailer announced Tuesday that store employees who serve as poll workers for the 2020 election will be paid for eight hours of work that day from the company, in addition to any compensation they could receive from their “local jurisdiction.”

According to CNN, the company has partnered with Civic Alliance and Power the Polls to recruit 250,000 new workers amid shortages of such volunteers due to the pandemic, and the goal is to help ensure that sites are able to stay open and operate in an effective manner.

“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,” Nancy Green, head of the company, said in a statement.

The move was met with approval from many on social media, including Rock The Vote, which aims to inspire younger voters to make sure their voices are heard.

Others declared their support for the company’s decision by urging others to then return the favor by supporting them financially.

There was also support for them and the NBA, which has also pledged to help the shortage of poll workers and sites by opening arenas for voting.

Of course, some still had some fun with the news, joking about long waits for products they ordered online in reference to the news.

It is unclear if other companies plan to follow suit.
