MANDATES: United CEO confirms 232 employees are being fired for not complying with its vaccine mandate.

Related: American Airlines, Southwest Airlines to Defy Abbott’s COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate Ban.

Also: Vaccine hesitant New Yorkers consider leaving the city as mandates take effect.

The victims of vaccine mandates are disproportionately poor minorities.

UPDATE: Why Is Everyone Lying About Southwest Airlines? “A lot of them have already recovered from Covid and do not need the vaccine, but the Biden administration is forcing them anyway. So, this weekend, a lot of them did not show up for work. That used to be called civil disobedience, but that is what is actually happening. That happened this weekend. There is no doubt about it. The fact virtually everyone in charge has been lying about it tells you a lot. Tells you, on the one hand, they do not want to own up to the results of their policies, the reckless, crazy policies, which are in effect a power grab and not public health, but it also tells you they are very worried. Because when ordinary people realize they have power, too, especially people with skills, who do things most people can’t do like fly airplanes or run air traffic control centers, when they realize simply by not doing those things, they can be heard, maybe the government has less power than they think they do.”
