Over the past few weeks, we have seen thousands of flights cancelled, store shelves emptied and millions of businesses struggling to maintain adequate manpower to stay afloat. Some of this is undoubtedly due to massive federal payouts that disincentivize Americans from returning to the workforce, but something else is also afoot.
Millions of highly qualified teachers, doctors, technicians, pilots, truck drivers and many other professionals are simply refusing to be injected with a COVID shot which entails risk of serious illness and, in tens of thousands of documented cases, even death.
It turns out, that if forced to choose between their job and their health, many Americans will opt for the latter. As a result, the nation is entering an unprecedented collapse of the workforce.

It won’t be easy, or even without consequences, but it’s time for companies to stand with employees and simply refuse to force hard working men and women to choose between their livelihoods and the jab.
For some companies, this may mean losing contracts and restructuring business models to protect the fundamental right of employees to determine their own healthcare.
There is evidence, however, that by standing up to unjust mandates, businesses will find people flocking to support them – both employees and customers.
If you know of Alaska companies taking this stand, please let us know.
