    Welfare handouts for the anti-vaxxer crazies, courtesy of your tax dollars!

    Red States Are Now Paying Unemployment Benefits to Anti-Vaxxers Who Quit Their Jobs

    On Oct. 20, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds announced a crackdown on unemployment benefits. She required recipients to double their job-search activity, and she imposed strict audits—with the threat of cutting off payments to anyone who fell short—to ensure that “no Iowan who is receiving unemployment benefits unnecessarily remains on the sidelines” of the job market.

    Nine days later, however, Reynolds signed legislation that pays vaccine refusers to do just that: sit on the sidelines. Under the new law, anyone “discharged from employment for refusing to receive a vaccination against COVID-19 … shall not be disqualified for benefits.”

    Reynolds is one of many Republican politicians who openly advocate, and in some states have successfully imposed, a two-tiered system of unemployment insurance. It’s not a left-wing policy of money for everyone or a right-wing policy of money for no one. It’s a policy of pernicious hypocrisy: welfare for vaccine refusers, tough love for everyone else.

    Under these new laws, any worker who gets fired for broadly defined “misconduct,” such as flunking an employer-imposed drug test, is disqualified from unemployment benefits—but employees who refuse COVID vaccination are glorified, protected, and subsidized. The state must guarantee, in Reynolds’ words, that these reckless freeloaders “will still receive unemployment benefits despite being fired for standing up for their beliefs.”

    The GOP’s coddling of vaccine refusers makes a joke of its rhetoric about self-reliance. This summer, for instance, Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee ended the federal government’s supplemental COVID-era unemployment benefits. “We are paying people to stay home. That needs to change,” he declared. But two weeks ago, Lee signed legislation that pays vaccine refusers to stay home. Under Tennessee’s new policy, the state’s normal rule about employees fired for “misconduct”—that they lose their eligibility for unemployment benefits—can no longer be applied to anyone who is terminated for “refusing to receive a vaccination for COVID-19.”

    In May, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced that he, too, would end bonus payments to unemployed Floridians. These payments, he argued, had created a perverse “incentive structure” that discouraged people from working. But DeSantis signed legislation two weeks ago that sets up a similar incentive structure, exclusively for people who defy COVID vaccine requirements (albeit with lower payments than when the federal government was still offering an extra $300 per week in benefits). Under the new law, vaccine refusal can’t “be deemed misconduct for the purpose of reemployment assistance.” In fact, the Florida law says that if you’re unemployed and you’re offered a job that requires vaccination, you can turn it down and stay on the dole.

    San Francisco and they arrived from South Africa on November 22nd. Plenty of time to share the wealth.

    And I knew it would already be here. By the time they figure out that there's a variant, it's already too late. As far as testing for travel, you're only required to provide a negative PCR test within 3 days of your flight if you're vaccinated which we all know you can still carry it either way. Plenty of time to be infected within that window of time. It was inevitable.

    I'm afraid my friend will be saying goodbye to her husband soon. He's in ICU on a vent. Covid of course. Nice guy. Big guy, mid, late 50s? He's the one we call when our washer goes down. They both had C last year. Believed that they were immune, didn't get vaxxed, so here we are. I'm just so angry. Meanwhile, follow me to speak here!

    It happens. At my work, there are 4 of us in the office. 2 people got it at separate times, so surprisingly no one passed it to each other here.

    Are they vaccinated?

    Im hoping the booster is my saving grace. I dont know about my son though, he was around my nephew the most and is too young to get vaccinated. But he is showing no symptoms so far.
