The legislature in the Midwest was dominated by Republicans who are urging a federal court to halt President Joe Biden’s policy. This horrible policy is “requiring” millions of American workers to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Instead of the vaccination, the workers are undergoing weekly testing. This is according to a brief that was filed on Wednesday.
Legislature: the Death Knell of the American Dream
Michigan GOP lawmakers went and painted the stakes that surround the policy as all in. However, there are supporters which are arguing it. Thus protecting the workers against the spreading of this deadly virus.
In a statement, it would be “the death knell of the American dream as the mandate could not continue,” contented Senate Majority Leader, a Republican, Mike Shirkey.
The attorney general in Kentucky, Ohio, and Tennessee, hoping to block the new standard, challenged the rule from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in the 6th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals. The Michigan House and Senate submitted a brief in support of the other states.
“Therefore, it is an unwarranted use of the federal government’s authority to address occupational hazards. That would be from the expansion. There is an unprecedented intrusion into the sovereign police power. This is historically reserving to the states,” the Michigan Legislature’s filing did argue.
There is a granted emergency stay of the vaccine and a testing requirement on Saturday from the 5th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals. That was a separate case.
On November 4th, the federal government policy did cover businesses with 100 or more employees.
Then the businesses, under it, must be implementing. Therefore, and then forcing a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy. That unless they do adopt a policy requiring employees to “choose” to either be vaccinating. Then they are to undergoing regular COVID-testing. Thus, wearing a mask, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.
By January 4th, workers would have to have their final vaccine dose. This is according to Biden’s administration. There is grave danger for the nation’s unvaccinated workers face dire danger from workplace exposure to Corona Virus. Therefore, there was imminent action that is necessary to protect them. In a statement last week the labor department said it.
