The media and politicians are in an uproar over the latest Labor Department monthly Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey showing that a record 4.3 million people quit their jobs in August. Analysts are pinning the job quitting epidemic on the COVID 19 pandemic. They say that workers are running out of their jobs screaming because of the increase in COVID infections, the DELTA variant, and fear of possible infection. These very intelligent Ivy League grads analyzing the figures could very well be slightly off the mark. Consider that the Biden Administration has been jack-booting businesses to invoke vaccine mandates for months, and while COVID may be the cause for quitting, mandates may be a major reason.
In March, Biden’s press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters that the Biden Administration is working on “guidelines” for the nation, but “a determination or development of vaccine passport or whatever you want to call it will be driven by the private sector.” In April, Psaki said, “As these tools are being considered by the private and nonprofit sectors, our interest is very simple from the federal government, which is Americans’ privacy and rights should be protected.” But forcing people to take a drug against their will violates both privacy and civil rights. Then on July 6, Biden said, the government should go “door to door–literally knocking on doors–to get help to the remaining people [not] protected from the virus.” The pressure of this narrative continued daily through government and media.
In September, Biden said he was losing patience with the unvaccinated, and laid out a vaccine mandate for government employees and contractors, and a plan to fine businesses through OSHA $700,000 per incident for unvaccinated workers. This is classic socialist soft tyranny as defined by Alexis de Tocqueville in his book Democracy in America, Volume II (1840): “Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence: it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd.” The ongoing, constant pressure of being forced to take a drug or lose your job, your livelihood, may have driven millions to just leave their jobs and try to find work without a mandate. No surprise here.
Additionally, vaccine mandates will cause a massive disruption of the economy says Joshua Yoder, founder of US Freedom Flyers and an American Airlines pilot. He told Fox News, “If you have flights reduced by 30% because 30% of pilots are fired because they won’t take the vaccine, this is going to affect how your goods get here from overseas, how they are distributed to the store.” Frontline workers, once called heroes, are under attack for refusing the COVID jab. Nurses in New York have been fired, and 40% of the Seattle police force may be fired due to a vaccine mandate. Christ said in Mark 12:17, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” Caesar doesn’t own our bodies, neither does Biden. His “no vax, no work” mandate will surely bring calamity for all. It’s already started. Say it with me…Stupidocrisy.
