Under the direction of the Biden administration, The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has developed a rule to force private employers with over 100 employees to implement mandatory Covid testing and vaccine requirements.
This comes as a complete 180-degree turn from what Jen Psaki said in the summer when asked about federal vaccine mandates. Psaki explicitly stated that it was "not the role of the federal government" and was under the jurisdiction of private sectors and individual institutions to decide to implement at their discretion what is best for their employers.
Now, a White House reporter has Tweeted, "NEW: OSHA has finished developing a rule that compels companies with 100+ employees to require vaccines or regular testing. It also requires employers to provide paid time to workers to get vaccinated and to recover from any side effects. The rule will go into effect in days."
This is anticipated to trigger some major resistance and potential lawsuits, with politicians like Florida governor Ron DeSantis vowing to challenge the mandate. #Truthbomber
