JCN Slams Shameful and Outrageous Vaccine Mandate Cost Burden that Puts Small Businesses and Their Hardworking Employees Over A Barrel Once Again

Press ReleaseOctober 29, 2021

Alfredo Ortiz, President and CEO of Job Creators Network (JCN), released the following statement in response to leaked reports that the Biden Administration’s vaccine mandate on employers will allow costs to be passed along to employees:

“We hope this leak suggesting employers will be allowed to pass the costs of the Biden Administration’s vaccine mandate along to employees is only rumor, not fact because it’s absolutely disgraceful and un-American. Hardworking employees already struggling with high inflation, falling real wages, and a Biden pay cut shouldn’t face the additional costs of the Biden Administration’s unconstitutional executive overreach. These costs will encourage employees to leave for companies with fewer than 100 employees not affected by this order, exacerbating the historic labor shortage. This issue exemplifies the division between big and small businesses. Big businesses don’t care about the direct and indirect costs of this mandate that can make or break small businesses and their employees. That’s why JCN’s lawsuit to defeat this vaccine mandate is so important. JCN is fighting every day for small businesses.”
