NYC Mayor de Blasio Announced Vaccine Mandates for Private Businesses

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is officially on the clock, but that has not stopped him from trying to make a big splash.

De Blasio has expressed interest in the gubernatorial election, and it would appear that he is using the city of New York’s business owners to gain some traction.

Mayor de Blasio has announced the “first-in-the-nation” vaccine mandates for private companies.

Mixed Reactions

With slightly more than three weeks left in office, most expected de Blasio to mail it in and allow Mayor-elect Eric Adams to deal with any vaccine issues.

Instead, de Blasio issued an order that surprised the entire nation, especially business owners in New York City, that this mandate would impact the most.

The new mandate will require all workers in the private sector to be vaccinated by December 27.

There is NO testing option available, even for those that have recovered and have active antibodies for the virus.

The feedback was mixed at best.

Some in the liberal horde were okay with the decision, wanting to see people take the jab regardless of how they feel about it.

The pushback was all along the same lines, “people have to have a choice.”

In addition to businesses, children over the age of five must also be vaccinated.

Forcing medicine on children is probably not a wise move, especially when you consider how little impact this virus has had on younger children.

One resident stated, “I think it’s pretty well known that [COVID-19 is] not a big threat to children of that age, so to force the vaccine on people that young is a bit crazy.”

With Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates already being challenged in the courts, I see this getting challenged right out of the gate.

This is clearly de Blasio trying to make a splash for higher office, but this is also the definition of government overreach.

Let’s hear from our New York readers… will you respect this mandate or fight it?

A week ago, Joe Biden told Americans that prices aren’t actually high.

But the numbers don’t lie.

Inflation is up 14.4% since Biden took office.

And all the president can offer are more lies.

Inflation ⬆️ more than expected.

Overall CPI: +6.4% y/y
Fuel Oil: +27.7%
Electricity: +11.9%
Groceries: +11.3%
Chicken +10.5%
Milk: +11%
Eggs: +70.1%
Bread: +14.9%
Potatoes: +12.4%
Baby Food: +10%
Airline Fares: +25.6%
Real Average Hourly Earnings: -1.8%

Year-over-year real wages have been negative for 22 months - ever since Biden forced through his $1.9 trillion "stimulus."

That's a wages recession for American workers.
