In-N-Out has found itself facing the wrath of California liberals.
With the burger chain not wanting to force customers to divulge personal medical information, it is now facing massive fines and/or shutdowns.
DeSantis is now offering the company a lifeline.
We Won’t Do It
Right now, there are three counties requiring vaccine mandates for businesses.
While In-N-Out has posted the policies, it is not actually enforcing them.
Chief legal and business officer, Arnie Wensinger, stated, “It is unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe to force our restaurant Associates to segregate Customers into those who may be served and those who may not, whether based on the documentation they carry, or any other reason.”
He has further stated that the burger chain will not serve as “the vaccination police for any government.”
Contra Costa County, one of the counties with a mandate in place where the chain operates, stated that the order “is necessary now to save lives, protect our overburdened healthcare system, and slow the pandemic enough to keep our schools open.
“Reducing community transmission of the virus now is key to preventing future spikes in cases from overwhelming our county’s hospitals during the winter months.”
Florida has since extended a hand to bring the chain to its state.
Florida’s chief financial officer, Jimmy Patronis, sent a letter to In-N-Out owner Lynsi Snyder, stating, “I know how hard it is to turn a profit and make payroll on a good day, let alone when your own government is working to crush your business with absurd mandates.
“Once I heard the news of your shutdown for refusing to function as ‘vaccine police,’ I knew I had to reach out immediately.”
He then offered to help move the company HQ to Florida, stating that his state was “free and open for business.”
California has already lost a portion of Tesla’s business to Texas, so this would be a crippling blow if DeSantis can pull it off.
