A few months ago Joe Biden issued an executive order which directed federal employees and contractors to enforce a vaccine mandate which requires employees to be vaccinated or submit to weekly testing. He also tasked the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) with promulgating an emergency rule which would require private employers with over 100 employees to do the same.
Despite resounding opposition from every segment of the employer market including small businesses, large businesses and even major labor unions, Joe Biden and his brood of bumbling tyrants pressed forward stomping on the necks of working Americans and businesses as firmly as they can.
The rule will require employers to have a policy in place by December 5 and require all unvaccinated employees to be masked and distances by December 5 and then vaccinated or tested weekly by January 4. Ho ho ho and Happy Holidays, it’s COVID-19 shot or coal.
In a time where the labor market is facing acute shortages, the U.S. supply chain is in shambles and families across America are expecting to face food and energy shortages for the foreseeable future, Joe Biden felt that the number one priority he has is to hold the gun of unemployment to the head of citizens exercising medical freedom to make a political point and line the pockets of his big Pharma pals.
As American Airlines cancels 1/3rd of their flights over the busy weekend because they do not have the pilots they need to fly under a vaccine mandate, it is baffling that Joe Biden believes forcing this agenda is an example of true leadership.
If any employer chooses to side with their employees instead of the tyrant state they face a penalty of $136,000 per violation if OSHA deems the violation “willful.” Accidental violations face $13,000 penalties. Meaning no one really cares about actual safety. They care about enthusiastic compliance.
Several Republican lead states have already vowed to sue the Federal government over the rule to protect their businesses and their workers from economic ruin. For example, Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida has vowed that he will challenge the rule immediately.
