2.5 Million Truckers Say They’ll Quit Over Biden’s Vaccine Mandate

Millions of truckers say they’ll quit over President Joe Biden’s workplace vaccine mandate, leading to dire supply chain issues if it’s enforced.

“We’ve tried to be very clear to the administration — I understand the logic behind it — but if you do this, these are the consequences,” American Trucking Associations President Chris Spear told the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee this week. “So if you’re trying to solve the supply chain problem, you’re actually compounding it and actually hurting the very problem you’re trying to fix.”

According to an ATA survey, if Biden’s vaccine mandate is enforced, the trucking industry will lose 37% of its workforce — 2.5 million truckers.

Spear told the House members the survey “came back as 37% of drivers not only said ‘no,’ but ‘hell no.'”

“It’s not about being anti-vax — we’ve been moving the vaccine test kits,” Spears added.

    It’s amazing to me that the truckers association say(but in my opinion)don’t understand, that laws or mandates in a “free” society are forced upon us for the greater good of the masses, not because of losing our “real” freedoms that our constitution gives us.
    Stop signs, speed limits, mandatory inoculations for school age children, non-smoking public areas, are just an example of this.
    The very best example of this is why there is no polio in our country. When I was a youngster, you went to school one day and lined up for your “shot”. No religious exemptions, or rumors that you might grow a tail , or some other b(u^&*+i)T by getting it !
    I realize that like rectums, everyone has a personal opinion, and mine is plain and simple…………
    All of this “hoopla” and misinformation about the available vaccines are motivated political opinions, grossly misinformation, or both. .
    I’m 80 years old, contracted Covid 19 before inoculations were available, and have contracted extreme C.O.P.D., and stage 3
    kidney problems because of that. I’m VERY lucky to be alive !!!
    For your OWN sake, and that of OTHERS, swallow your misguided pride and get your shots
    both.

    Can’t blame em. It isn’t fair to corner the American worker and force them to choose between their beliefs and their livelihoods. Don’t comply. Why force the unprotected with the protection that didn’t protect the protected? Oh yea, can you all please take your allergy medication so mine can work? Thank you
