i had to do a clinical study for the kittengarten science fair, so i studied the effect of masks and vaccine mandates on employment using this morning consult data.
it was very compelling!
mandates were 6 times as effective at eliminating jobs vs saving them! (18% vs 3%)
do you guys think that maybe i could get some grant money to study this further?
it seems like something that politicians and employers ought to know!
I would like to see this further publicized also (hello Disney and Wal Mart!) , but you are not getting grant money because we know you will blow it on Fancy Feast.
The irony is that they artificially limited the worker supply with extended unemployment benefits, and then expect employers to cut the limited supply in half with a vaccine mandate.
I was under the impression that there is a shortage of health care workers. So if they are fired for not getting the jab where will we be? Strange way to thank them fior their sacrifice. And ivermectin etc is a valid alternative as a preventative.
To people who say the word “resilient” or “public good” one more time. Go lick toads.
Top tip. Billionaires are highly nutritious and can form part of a balanced diet.
Perhaps keeping the unvaxxed out of supermarkets isn’t such a great idea.
What continues to baffle me, although it probably should not, is how the entire idea of a lockdowns generally, and the (BS) NPIs specifically, are embraced preferentially by those who suffer the least. If you are a white coat scientist or a tenured faculty member or a middle-class office worker, you can work from home, via a high-speed Internet link, and none of these impositions matter to you. The COVID dumpster fire made the "two Americas" trope almost self-evident!
I honestly had not taken into account that forced masks and shots is a factor in labor shortage. Makes perfect sense. I’m a stay at home mom, retired nurse practitioner, rarely mask unless traveling. But for entry level jobs, I sure as heck would stay home over working in a hot useless mask.
Nice to see that most people aren't fans of discriminatory masking. There's still some decency in the world.
the advice is: make them fire you..... then file ue!
in case you have not seen YYG's analysis on the only thing lockdowns and masks have done is lower GDP... (and YYG is a liberal!)
Kitten crystal ball 🔮 is highly accurate!
Considering the overlap with "Disrespect/discrimination" and "Ethical concerns" it adds up to 32%, so we're in filibuster ballpark.
