Many conservative states have now banned public entities from mandating the COVID-19 vaccines. This is a step in the right direction, but doesn’t go nearly far enough. Private employers, as well as state and local governments, are still free to impose vaccination requirements on employees. This also must stop. In late November, Willis Towers Watson surveyed 543 large companies whose workforces total 5.2 million employees. They found that 57 percent of employers plan to mandate or already have mandated the COVID-19 vaccines. Many of those employers made their final decision conditional on the OSHA Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) taking effect.
The reason Donald Trump is winning is not because he is not politically correct, he always speaks his mind, or because he is an anti-establishment political outsider who never held elected office. The reason is: he talks about the economy. From the beginning, Trump has been harping on anti-trade measures that would bring jobs to the U.S. and on stronger borders and enforcement mechanisms to combat illegal immigration. While anti-trade and anti-immigration may not be the answers for solving the economic malaise, Trump is the only candidate who has consistently brought up the economy as the U.S.’s number one problem.
