Joe Biden may have admitted “there is no federal solution” to stopping the China Virus pandemic, that isn’t stopping him from moving forward with a vaccine mandate on employees both federal and in the private sector.
While the legality of Biden’s mandate remains in questions (the Supreme Court has agreed to hear his case), workers who chose not to receive a shot are left wondering how long until the other shoe drops and their employer is forced to give them the axe.
Luckily for them, there are some GOP-led states vowing to protect the unvaccinated from undue federal overreach.
At least five states have passed legislation boosting unemployment insurance for workers who lose their jobs for being unvaccinated, and several more states are considering similar protections.
Arkansas, Florida, Iowa, Kansas, and Tennessee have extended unemployment benefits for workers fired for not getting vaccinated against COVID-19. Lawmakers in Wyoming, Wisconsin, and Missouri are considering similar worker protections in a Republican-led effort to fight back against Joe Biden’s federal vaccine orders, which cover millions of private workers and federal contractors.
Of the states that have boosted unemployment insurance for unvaccinated workers, only Kansas is run by a split government with a Democratic governor and GOP-controlled legislature. The rest of the states are under full GOP control at the state level.
Biden’s vaccine orders have sparked widespread and intense pushback from elected officials and private businesses.
Particularly business owners are most affected especially at a time when staffing is nearly impossible and the labor market is transformed into an illegal alien hiring pool.
Four of the states — Arkansas, Florida, Iowa, and Tennessee – cut federal emergency unemployment benefits in June over concerns that boosted unemployment insurance was incentivizing workers to stay home and out of the job market.
Those states are now boosting unemployment benefits again over the Biden administration’s orders that would strip unvaccinated Americans of employment.
The Biden administration’s orders are designed to coerce Americans to get vaccinated. Earlier this month, the president resorted to apocalyptic warnings to drive Americans to get vaccinated.
Before the holidays, the cognitively deficient president warned that unvaccinated Americans will be responsible for ushering in a “winter of severe illness and death” and will soon “overwhelm” hospitals.
Biden also said that a vaccinated public will contribute to safeguarding the country’s economic recovery.
