Libertarian: Yesterday’s Heroes Get the Can
At the pandemic’s height, Gothamites gathered at their windows nightly to bang pots and pans and cheer for health and other essential workers — now “those same New Yorkers, through their representative government, are telling those same essential workers to go look for a new job, unless they have been vaccinated for COVID-19,” sighs Reason’s Matt Welch. “The requirements are exacerbating existing staff shortages in the health-care sector 19 months into the pandemic,” even as they seem to be causing some uptick in jabs. “Vaccine mandates may well be the last illiberal push that results in the US reaching some mythical pandemic off-ramp. But they may also create health-care shortages in the Northeast right as the virus once again rears its seasonal and regional head.” --->READ MORE HERE

Two-thirds of likely voters oppose firing workers who object to COVID vaccine: Poll
Two-thirds of likely U.S. voters oppose firing workers who resist taking the novel coronavirus vaccine even as vaccination mandates from President Biden and Democratic governors begin to take effect, found a poll released Wednesday.
The Convention of States Action poll conducted by the Trafalgar Group showed that 65% of likely voters “do not believe Americans should lose their jobs if they object to taking the COVID-19 vaccine,” while 22% believe the unvaccinated should lose their jobs. Another 12.8% were unsure.
Convention President Mark Meckler said the “message here is clear: your livelihood should not be put at risk because you don’t want the vaccine.”
“Washington, D.C., is making it clear the mandates are not about immunity but about conformity,” Mr. Meckler said in a statement. “As our own government continues to release conflicting info about the effectiveness of vaccines and the benefit of natural immunity, more and more Americans are standing up against the forced vaccination of American workers.” --->READ MORE HERE
