They have no choice if they take the grant money. Neither does any carrier. They will all take the grant money, so therefore the employees will collect a paycheck.
The carriers are not doing it out of the goodness of their hearts. If there was no grant money, the picture would be completely different.
I appreciate that the carriers lobbied pretty hard for it, though.
That said, they don’t have to pay them to stay at home. Some are requiring employees to show up if they want to get paid.
