Biden to Tell Employers to Mandate Vaccines or Require Weekly Testing

President Joe Biden’s presidency is off to a disastrous start and his approval rating is plummeting. In response, Biden has a new idea. 

According to the Wall Street Journal, Biden plans to tell large employers to either mandate vaccines or require weekly testing to combat Covid-19.

“The Labor Department in the coming weeks plans to issue an emergency temporary standard implementing the new requirement, which will cover 80 million private-sector workers, officials said.”

The report adds that businesses that do not comply are subject to substantial fines up to nearly $14,000 per violation.

“All employers with 100 or more employees would have to require their workers to be vaccinated or undergo at least weekly Covid-19 testing under a new plan by President Biden to curb the spread of the pandemic, senior administration officials said.”

Under Biden’s new plan, employers have to give workers paid time off to get vaccinated or to recover from any side effects of getting vaccinated. So there is that.

To be clear, this is not a joke. Biden plans to announce his new requirement Thursday, part of a six-point initiative to boost vaccinations.

    • Elihu, no offense dude…. but if you think Trump is to blame for this then I have a bridge to sell you.

      Look at (white western style countries) Australia and Canada and see that the outcome would have been no different. What is taking place is a global project of extreme & coordinated overreach.

      • No no no not at all. Just pisses me off that Trump did all that, then had the WH stolen, now that senile POS is clubbing the people with it. No way Trump would have jammed this down people’s throats.

        Agree with the rest 100%.

        • You get it my friend lol I was screaming from the rooftops for Trump not to go along with rushing this shit. You can’t bet the leftist echo chambers are going to try and pin this on him when the mandates don’t work and they actually have to address the efficacy of the vaccines.

  1. The southern border is wide open shipping who knows what all over the country not vetted tested or vacs this tyrannical old fool is going to find out pushing free citizens with constitutional rights continually violated ain’t gunna fly

  2. People were never going to vote for communism on their own. Even with propaganda professors brainwashing students.

    So…. They decided the only way to implant modern communism and excessive government mandates was through pretending it was about “health”
    in a crisis…. (There is no crisis folks) —> but in a “crisis” then anything is possible.

  3. Matt Walsh from the Daily Wire last night referred to Biden as “a rotting sack of oatmeal”. Best description of the grifter I’ve heard yet. Also, notice Biden won’t mention the largest (% wise) group of people who refuse to get vaccinated (blacks).

  4. One more thought – the efficacy of the vaccine wears off after 8 months or so, requiring a booster shot. So does this mean that the mandate will extend indefinitely, with employees required to get boosters (or get tested) on an ongoing basis or else they’ll lose their jobs and their companies will face fines?
