Here’s what happened…
Major businesses in the city of New York are now claiming that they feel completely “blindsided” by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio who just issued a mandate forcing all private businesses to vaccinate their employees with no testing option.
According to Fox, “The business community was blindsided by the media leak from City Hall that there will be a vaccine mandate on the city’s private sector employees, apparently with no testing option,” Partnership for New York City said.
Pfizer, PepsiCo, Deloitte, Citi, American Express, The Carlyle Group and The New York Times are all companies which make up the Partnership for New York City committee.
The group further explained, “Inconsistent policies at the federal, state and city levels are not helpful and it is unclear who will enforce a mayoral mandate, and whether it is even legal. President Biden’s vaccine mandate on employers with over 100 employees is currently held up by litigation and it is hard to imagine that the mayor can do what the president is being challenged to accomplish.”
“The president focused on large employers, provided a testing option for those who do not get vaccinated, and allowed four months to prepare for compliance,” they group further noted.
