Over Thanksgiving, Americans flew to visit friends and family in numbers close to pre-COVID travel, with 2.3 million people hitting the skies.
Is President Joe Biden following the science? If the White House prevails in court, you’ll soon need a COVID-19 vaccine to keep your job at any company with more than 100 employees. Yet you don’t need a vaccine to fly with more than 100 strangers.
Effective January, unless you work only at home, a Biden-ordered Occupational Safety and Health Administration directive requires you to get a vaccine or a weekly test — or be fired from your job. The White House’s reasoning is that “unvaccinated workers face grave danger.”
Further, the federal government says it has the mandate authority as a longtime regulator of workplace safety.
Finally: The White House says it is not putting an undue burden on large employers, who “have the administrative capacity to implement the standard’s requirements promptly.”
