About 40 percent said vaccines won't be required. The rest were undecided or unsure.
Perhaps this will sway some of those undecideds: A different survey conducted by Eagle Hill Consulting found that nearly 60 percent of workers in Greater Boston want their boss to make vaccines mandatory.
That same study found that 45 percent of respondents want their nonvaccinated colleagues to stay clear of the workplace.
At the same time, 56 percent of workers said their unvaccinated coworkers should not get special treatment to work from home, reports Anissa Gardizy at the Globe.
And did you know there’s a tax credit too?
Even where it's not mandatory, many business owners are doing all they can otherwise to encourage their teams to get vaccinated.
Employers can take tax credits for up to 80 hours of paid sick leave equal to the employee’s regular wage, capped at $511 per day up to $5,110, for employees who were sick or quarantining, awaiting the results of a COVID test, or obtaining or recovering from a vaccine.
Are you ready for two years of a narrower Mass Pike?
The elevated section of the Massachusetts Turnpike between Boston University and the Charles River is deteriorating at an exponential rate.
A $75 million dollar repair job is expected to begin late next year.
The initial work will be beneath the roadway itself. But after that two years of surface work with lane closures will be needed on nights and on weekends, reports Bruce Mohl at CommonWealth.
But former transportation secretary Fred Salvucci says that's enough. He believes state officials should consider reducing the number of lanes on the Pike now to reduce weight and stress on the structure.
