Job Creators Network Responds to Misleading U.S. Chamber Poll on Vaccine Mandate

Washington, DC (October 28, 2021) — Today, the U.S. Chamber publicly released a poll claiming that 64 percent of small business owners support businesses in their area requiring vaccines for their employees. The poll was taken September 30 – October 7.

Alfredo Ortiz, President and CEO of Job Creators Network, released the following statement: 

“The U.S. Chamber poll is extremely misleading.  Ninety-eight percent of the people polled for the Chamber survey own companies with under 100 employees. The Biden vaccine mandate does not affect them. What the Chamber should have done is poll company owners who are affected by the mandate.  Since the Chamber didn’t do that, it’s clear they’re trying to manipulate the public into supporting a vaccine mandate. The Chamber claims it supports small businesses, but this polling manipulation demonstrates otherwise. JCN intends to sue OSHA to block the implementation of this detrimental mandate should it be finalized. We are not anti-vaccine; we are anti-government mandates that will hurt small businesses and hurt our entire economy.”
