We need to go back to simpler times. Taking care of family, work, and treating people the way you want to be treated. I’m finishing 35 years flying with an airline. 15,000 pilots on the seniority list. Plenty of new faces, and beliefs. Always concentrated on duties, having a good time. Flying international, adjusting to different countries, complying with regulations, different languages, medical requirements for yellow fever, malaria, etc. Life isn’t hard. Keep it simple. Lot more fun to be happy, not stressed.
Notice how they say wont hire NEW unvaccinated workers. They know they can't afford to lose their existing employees by forcing this on them.
It's common for large companies to grandfather in existing employees when they make an important policy change. This is what usually happened when they replaced defined-benefit pensions with 401(k) plans (if anything).
Let's see what happens when the vaccines get full FDA approval and it becomes legal to require vaccination.
The point is why are they only concerned with the Covid Vaccine and not other very serious illnesses/diseases that people are already vaccinated for? In the past only Healthcare and education sectors were concerned with vaccination records. I've never had any place outside of school ask for my vaccine records.
Exactly. Why are they not forcing a TB vaccine on everyone? TB is one of the deadliest infectious diseases in the world. According to the WHO nearly 4,000 die daily from TB. A total of 1,400,000 people in the world died of TB in 2019 alone (per the WHO). I wonder why this preventable disease is not on United's hit list. Again, the woke companies are bowing to political science and ignoring medical science.
