Joe Biden outraged millions of Americans when he announced his ill-fated mandate. Americans were forced to choose between blindly obeying the government or losing their jobs. The good news is, Biden is struggling to find a way to implement his mandate.
That hasn’t stopped private businesses from pushing their own mandates. Major companies are watching their staff force fall apart as they push these questionable rules. It didn’t take long for Americans to fight back with lawsuits.
Now, a federal judge from Texas is stopping one company in its tracks.
A federal judge in Texas issued a temporary restraining order (TRO) against United Airlines on Wednesday, blocking the airline from imposing a vaccine mandate against any of its employees in a nationwide class-action lawsuit…
United Airlines is prohibited from placing employees with religious and medical exemptions on unpaid leave until October 26 while litigation continues. The judge also prohibited the airline from denying any employee requests for religious or medical exemptions. Previously, the airline did not allow employees to apply for an exemption after August 31.
A nationwide class-action lawsuit was brought against United Airlines over its mandate. They were forcing employees to get the jab or lose their job. Workers with legitimate medical or religious objections were forced to take unpaid leave. Others were not allowed to apply for exemption beyond the deadline of August 31st.
A federal judge out of Texas put a restraining order on the company’s mandate, preventing them from kicking employees to the curb. The final decision on the suit has yet to be decided, but this is clearly a watershed moment.
Federal courts will decide if a private company and mandate employees to get a medical procedure, or face firing. This ruling could have significant impacts on the country, far beyond the current debate. Can companies violate the rights of Americans over “safety” concerns?
No doubt, United Airlines will argue that the courts are trying to interfere with private businesses. But something tells us that their argument won’t fly. This issue crashes against Americans’ constitutional liberties. Generally, courts side with citizens over these issues.
How the court rules could also undermine Biden’s mandate. He has been struggling to find a way to implement his bogus rule and enforce it. But if the courts defang these other mandates, Biden might be up a creek without a paddle.
Knowing how often he fails, however, he is unlikely to admit defeat. His own mandate might end up before the Supreme Court.
- A federal judge blocked United Airlines’ vaccine mandate against employees.
- The company was threatening to fire workers who did not comply.
- The court temporarily blocked the rule, as the suit is being decided.
