Biden’s Vaccine Mandate Will Cost Businesses A Whopping Sum
Joe Biden has failed on virtually every front important to the American voter.
Whether it be civil liberties, inflation, key economic metrics, Covid-19, foreign policy, or prosecutorial misconduct, the ‘President” of The United States has been a lame duck leader at best, and an harbinger of America’s destruction at worst.
The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals recently issued a temporary halt to his vaccine mandate, but he is still currently pressuring OSHA to reinstate the rescinded order.
Aside from the obvious unpopularity with forced experimental vaccines, critics are also pointing to another critical flaw in the mandates: compliance costs to businesses.

According to a recent study, businesses would have to shell out a whopping $1.3 billion in compliance costs to adhere to the mandate, and police their employees vaccination status.
Let’s take a look at these steep costs, and the pushback from American businesses nationwide:

The Epoch Times reports:
“Using information gathered from the U.S. Census Bureau, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the analysis in the OSHA ETS, the Biden Administration’s vaccine mandate will put an estimated 44,966,434 American jobs at risk. Additionally, U.S. businesses will spend at least $1.29 billion in complying with the requirements of the mandate,” the report said.
“Under President Biden’s unlawful and unconstitutional vaccine mandates, Kentucky risks losing up to 34 percent of its labor force, not to mention it will cost Kentucky businesses at least $50 million,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), the ranking Republican on the Senate small business panel, said in a statement making the study public.
Thirty percent of workers said they would leave their jobs rather than comply with a vaccine or testing mandate. Goldman Sachs, in an analysis published in September, said the mandate could hurt the already tight labor market. https://t.co/j2jQ8EsI1E

According to CNBC, the retail and trucking sectors of the economy are pushing back against Biden’s mandate as well:
The National Retail Federation, the National Federation of Independent Business and the American Trucking Associations, told the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit in their lawsuit that businesses would lose employees, incur “unrecoverable compliance costs” and face deteriorating conditions in “already fragile supply chains and labor markets.”
American Trucking Associations President Chris Spear, in a statement Wednesday, said the truckers told the administration that the requirements “could have devastating impacts on the supply chain and the economy,” but the administration has “unfortunately, chosen to move forward despite those warnings.”
