Growing pressures of the rapidly occurring Delta Variant has sparked rash decisions among employers across the country. In a land of Democracy and free opportunity, it appears to be more of a Dictatorship.
President Joe Biden is encouraging employers to fire those unvaccinated. Quite an aggressive move while our country suffers so much economic turmoil. Leave it up to Biden to make such a rash decision.

President Biden leaned into the new FDA licensure, or full approval, of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine on Monday, encouraging businesses to require vaccinations among employees “Today I’m calling on more companies…in the private sector to step up the vaccine requirements that will reach millions more people,” Biden said. “If you’re a business leader, a non-profit leader, a state or local leader, who has been waiting for full FDA approval to require vaccinations, I call on you now to do that… do what I did last month, requiring employees to get vaccinated or face strict requirements.”
In recent weeks, the Biden administration has rolled out vaccine requirements among federal workers, members of the armed forces, federal medical facilities and nursing home workers.
Ahead of full FDA approval for Pfizer’s vaccine on Monday, an increasing number of companies had been requiring their employees to be fully vaccinated before heading back to the office amid fears that the delta variant of the coronavirus will hinder the economic recovery. Companies requiring employees to receive the vaccine include Citigroup, Delta Air Lines, Equinox Group, Facebook, Goldman Sachs, and many others.
