Corporate world: vaccine mandate? (Full FDA approval)
As the title states, do you think we will be heading towards a vaccine mandate for most if not all corporate companies once Pfizer gets full FDA approval? I see headlines we are only weeks away from this.
I know in the airline industry, big tech, and healthcare industries they’ve already started this. I’m just trying to prepare mentally what to do next, if/when I’m going exit my corporate job. I hate that it looks to be heading in this direction but maybe a year from now things will change. Idk.
I think we’re at an interesting point given the signs of vaccine failure. Without that, yes, I think there would be a major push towards employer mandates. My own company is requiring that we all get vaccinated (including previously infected) to protect the immunocompromised employees who can’t be vaccinated. (Not me, I’ll retire instead and I actually don’t think they can afford to let me retire, but we’ll see.) But the more evidence that the vaccinee can get infected and pass it along, the less sway the argument will have. Fauci and the CDC have changed their view from get vaccinated to protect granny to get vaccinated so you won’t be as sick. To keep up the pretense that we must be vaccinated they will have to modify the mandate to say how recently you had to be boosted. That’s gonna hurt the narrative!
I think there will be mandates, but just like the Covid outbreak and every reaction along the way, the policy will lag a couple months from the data. So if FDA aproval in september, I’d guess mandates by October, vax deaths become self evident and policy reversals by christmas.
That being said. I think we need to make a list of all the companies who let employees go over vax mandates and black list them. They will willfully ruin their employees lives, so they can go jab themselves when all is said and done. Can’t stay profitable without employees.
I have no problem withdrawing my monetary support for companies that stomp on people’s rights.
Thanks Kat43 for your response. That is making me feel better.
May I ask what industry are you in for the company you work for?
They may elect to not mandate them, but take money out of paycheck to pay for an increase in insurance rates for unvaccinated.
I’m a paralegal at a large law firm with several offices across very blue cities. Clearly they think what they are doing is legal.
My point is that I think we’re in flux. My company’s Return To Office Policy is based on what appeared to be encouraging info a couple months ago and there are signs they realize we’ve moved past that point.
I work for a large SV manufacturing company. They’ve had mask-mandates and a WFH policy for over a year. They’ve encouraged employees to get one of the injections, but no mandates, so far. Not even a mention of one. This might be related to the fact that there has been a growing exodus of employees because the company adopted a raise/promotion policy about 10 years ago based primarily on things other than merit. Expectedly, the most productive, most inventive, most valuable employees have been leaving at the highest rate. The company was able to get away with this in the past because it had a competitive advantage in technology, and the industry had relatively few competitors. The competitive advantage is now gone and the competition is now much tougher. The “brain drain” from the company is only half the equation though; the employees who have been the recipients of unwarranted pay and promotions are draining finances that the company desperately needs to invest in R&D to keep pace with the competition, and those employees aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Instead of recognizing the folly of this policy, the company doubled-down and created a whole new department of “social impact” – WTH is that? Anyway, if the company were to implement mandatory injections, the “brain drain” would be exacerbated immensely because those employees who’ve been treated the most poorly (those of highest merit – the most valuable to the company) would be the first to leave. I think this might be the case for many large American companies who are now finding that they’re dealing with global competitors that don’t waste resources and finances on such non-objective, non-profitable endeavors.
My opinion, based on what Ive seen so far and the fact that this new reality we’re in does not obey the laws of logic; There will be mandates particularly by the largest companies regardless of whether the vaccines are proven effective or not.
The media will just continue to pump out the narrative that the vaccine is “safe and effective”, and the co-joined media/government/corporate machine will continue to cling to that narrative and double down on the big lie in the face of reality. Even if people were dropping in the street after the getting their 3rd booster, they will simply refuse to report it and continue to insist on their own version of reality.
The good news is, many small and midsized corporations wont do the mandates and we might see a brain drain away from the corporate monsters and into more independent driven enterprise. Eventually [ might take a year or two ] the covid hysteria is going to lose traction [ its already started ] and, if the vax campaign is just an undeniable failure, Fauci will come out and say “mission accomplished”. “We’ve gained enough herd immunity and covid has mutated to a less deadly strain, and its now safe to lift the mandates”.
^^ remember that prediction.
Brushhog, I won’t be putting any money against you on that prediction. Politicians and bureaucrats are well versed in doublespeak, doublethink, and newspeak. “We’ve always been at war with Eastasia!”
