Looks like people may not fall for it this time, unless their friends and family actually start dying.
My wife is a health care professional and she has seen rises in deaths (young and old, vaccinated or unvaccinated) in the hospitals at an alarming rate unfortunately.

That's weird cause almost overnight the media has switched to report the "infections" number and hospital admissions but death rate seems to be waaaaaay down from actual pandemic pre-vaccine numbers. Likely cause the infections are typically now to healthy any younger people who made a decision to stay unvaccinated.
Supposedly in cities like LA, SFO, and DCA they've had like 1 or 0 COVID DEATHS for the last 90 days.

" Its Just a couple weeks to slow the spread......" what are betters told us

Covid has precious little to do with the fact that management makes big talk about hiring and itís generally about 1/2 of what they say.

This is important for anyone considering applying. If youíre not in the very first few classes hired this round youíll be on reserve.

Iíve spoken with captains that were on reserve for 6 years as an FO. With our work rules that sounds like a very difficult existenceÖ

Sorry wannabes,
We just got a company email demanding we state our Covid Vax status.
BTW for all you unhopefuls that's illegal but that's the kinda **** that you're gonna be dealing with here.
They count on the stupid to respond before the law suit gets filed.
So just like the good professors in college used to say, "everything is political" it's now been updated to "everything's covid".
One more thing to add to your resumes...
Card carrying covid vaccine recipient.
If you're lucky during the interview they will give you a special emblem to put on your lanyard indicating that you have been vaxxed.
That's what they are doing for employees.
Good luck or should I say bad luck? If I were you I'd be hoping for the latter but that's like having a crystal ball.

If they asked your doctor to provide your medical records and the doctor did it without your consent, THAT would be illegal.

Asking you for your vaccination status is not that though.

Thanks Echelon!
I was hoping someone would clarify how the company was trying to circumvent this, so just to recap, it's not illegal to ask, it's not illegal to tell but you do NOT have to answer the question.
I choose: I decline to answer.
But then I don't get my armband, does this mean the AS stormtroopers will come knocking and pull up my floorboards? I guess only Max Tidwell knows.
What freedoms shall we give up next?
