NYC Fires 1,430 Employees For Defying Vaccine Mandate

On Monday, New York City confirmed that it had fired 1,430 municipal workers for refusing to comply with its COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

“The workers who were let go fell into two categories: new hires who got their first dose but never submitted proof of their second dose, and staff who were placed on leave without pay and opted out of their health coverage because they refused to get vaccinated,” Politico reported. “The city fired just two workers in the first category and 1,428 employees in the second. Another almost 1,000 city workers in the second category who were on leave without pay chose to get the shot before the termination deadline last week.”

“Our goal was always to vaccinate, not terminate, and city workers stepped up and met the goal placed before them,” Democrat Mayor Eric Adams said in a statement, according to Politico.

“Out of all the new city employees who received notices two weeks ago, only two who worked last week are no longer employed by the city. I’m grateful to all the city workers who continue to serve New Yorkers and ‘Get Stuff Done’ for the greatest city in the world,” he added.

The mass firings come as New York City continues to struggle to economically recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, with an unemployment rate that is double the national average.

“The city’s unemployment rate of 9.4 percent is more than double the national average, and its decline in recent months was largely caused by people dropping out of the labor force,” The New York Times reported at the end of 2021.

According to New York State Assemblyman Clyde Vanel, New York City cannot handle the cost of losing any workers.

“We want to make sure that New York is a place that you want to live, you want to go to school here, we want you to go to school here, we want you to work here, we want you to stay here – I hope that this Mayor will do the right thing, I believe that he will,” Vanel said.

    Who in their right mind would WANT to come to this state? NY is the most EXPENSIVE, RESTRICTIVE, HIGHEST TAXED state in the union, besides CA! NY cares NOTHING for it’s residents. Albany is more corrupt than Washington DC!!! This once beautiful state has been infected with failed liberal policies, so much so that over 352,000 people have LEFT! To hell with NYS… I know I’m leaving as soon as I can….

    The SSA uses the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) and the Government Offset Provision (GPO) to reduce earned SS Benefits from thousands of retired public servants (public school employees/police officers/fire fighters/State military reserve personnel/etc) in 26 States who earned SS Benefits from previous employment. The Federal/State governments does not allow these citizens to pay SS taxes and invest in SS while employed as a public servant. They are required to invest in various State Retirement Systems. The WEP/GPO was the brainchild of former President Jimmy Carter and supported by Democrats and Republicans. There are two Bills currently in Congress, House Bill HR82 and Senate Bill S1302 which repeals WEP/GPO. Despite 58% of the House and 33% of the Senate claiming they support the repeal of WEP/GPO they refuse to vote on the Bills and show who truly supports the Bills and who is lying for votes. President Biden claimed he supported the repeal of WEP/GPO while campaigning but now remains silent and wants to find other ways to penalize retirees and support illegals

    Terminating these employees is in direct disregard of Our Constitution. The mandates are illegal,the vaccine is unreliable,unsafe, & unproven for successfully combating COVID. The Biden admin is applying “guinea pig” techniques to PEOPLE. These terminated employees, over the years of dedicated server service, have been exposed to & survived an enormous amts of filth, germs, completely void of any sanitation. Yet, they are terminated for illegal actions. Politicians that violate the laws of our America, by so doing disregard the Constitution, commits treason, jeopardizes America’s Safety, socialistic, racist, unrest, etc ARE NOT POLITICIANS! THEY ARE CRIMINALS!!! Remove from office & persecute to the fullest extent of the law IMMEDIATELY!

On Tuesday, the White House announced that Vice President Kamala Harris has tested positive for COVID-19 and is not currently showing symptoms.

“Today, Vice President Harris tested positive for COVID-19 on rapid and PCR tests,” said Kirsten Allen, press secretary to the vice president. “She has exhibited no symptoms, will isolate and continue to work from the Vice President’s residence. She has not been a close contact to the President or First Lady due to their respective recent travel schedules. She will follow CDC guidelines and the advice of her physicians. The Vice President will return to the White House when she tests negative.”

Harris wrote on Twitter that she was going to continue to isolate and is showing no symptoms.

“Today I tested positive for COVID-19. I have no symptoms, and I will continue to isolate and follow CDC guidelines. I’m grateful to be both vaccinated and boosted,” Harris tweeted.

Harris last reportedly saw President Biden at the Easter Egg Roll on April 18 before leaving for California, which she returned from on April 25.

The vice president has been vaccinated against COVID-19 and has received two booster shots, receiving the second booster on April 1.

“Yesterday I received my second COVID-19 booster shot,” Harris tweeted on April 2. “We know that getting vaccinated is the best form of protection from this virus and boosters are critical in providing an additional level of protection. If you haven’t received your first booster—do it today.”

At Least 3 US Airlines Will Restore Flight Privileges To Some Mask Violators

Published

on

At least three major U.S. airlines – Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and American Airlines – have now said they will allow some passengers who were banned from their planes over mask violations to have their flight privileges restored – determined on a case-by-case basis.

On Wednesday, Delta released a statement saying, “At Delta, nothing is more important than the safety and security of our customers and our people. With masks now optional, Delta will restore flight privileges for customers on the mask non-compliance no-fly list only after each case is reviewed and each customer demonstrates an understanding of their expected behavior when flying with us.”

“Any further disregard for the policies that keep us all safe will result in placement on Delta’s permanent no-fly list. Customers who demonstrated egregious behavior and are already on the permanent no-fly list remain barred from flying with Delta,” the statement added.

United Airlines similarly announced it will allow passengers it banned for not following mask rules to be allowed to fly again.

“On a case-by-case basis, we will allow some customers who were previously banned for failing to comply with mask-related rules to fly United again — after ensuring their commitment to follow all crewmember instructions on board,” United Airlines said in a statement.

American Airlines will also allow passengers banned for violating mask rules “to resume travel at some point in time,” according to the company’s chief government affairs officer, Nate Gatten.

“In cases where an incident may have started with face mask noncompliance and escalated into anything involving something more serious, or certainly an assault on one of our key members or customers, those passengers are going to remain on our permanent internal refuse list and will never be allowed to travel with us again,” Gatten said.
