Concerned Businesses Ask Biden to Delay Covid-19 Mandates Until After the Holidays

Business groups asked the White House for an extension on Joe Biden’s Covid-19 vaccine requirements for private companies this week, telling the administration a more suitable time would be after the Christmas shopping season.

“White House officials at the Office of Management and Budget held dozens of meetings with labor unions, industry lobbyists and private individuals last week as the administration conducts its final review of the mandate, which will require businesses with 100 or more employees to ensure they are vaccinated against Covid or tested weekly for the virus. It is estimated to cover roughly two-thirds of the private sector workforce,” reports CNBC.

“The American Trucking Associations, which will meet with the OMB on Tuesday, warned the administration last week that many drivers will likely quit rather than get vaccinated, further disrupting the national supply chain at time when the industry is already short 80,000 drivers,” adds the financial outlet.

“Now placing vaccination mandates on employers, which in turn force employees to be vaccinated, will create a workforce crisis for our industry and the communities, families and businesses we serve,” said one industry insider.

“It has been a hectic holiday season already, as you know, with supply chain struggles,” said another. “This is a difficult policy to implement. It would be even more difficult during the holiday season.”

    I say let Biden implement the mandate. It will be the worst mistake of his life as the American Economy grinds to a halt, and Americans want his head on a pike. It is now a cold civil war, and separation. If Biden does this, this could be the spark that sets off civil war, and no one wants that.

    Gotta keep Q4 sales numbers up. The OSHA stuff is not official yet. You’d expect that to cause an incredible amount of rage among millions of working Americans. But remember, everything is done for a reason and purging wronk thing, wrong speak and science denial will further the only thing that matters to them – The Great Reset.

    So, just a delay for the same mandate, to get the same consequence, but corporations will have their Christmas profits…..awesome. BTW, what is the OSHA regulation number? Is there anything enforceable written down?

    Also, the natural immunity thing gets ignored, but regardless, these madidates need to go.
