Half Of Unvaccinated People Say They Will Quit Job Over Mandate, But Will They?

With some jobs now considering a vaccine mandate for their employees, studies show how likely workers are to comply.

Half Of Unvaccinated People Say They Will Quit Job Over Mandate, But Will They?

At first, it felt like there was nothing the world could do except wait as the coronavirus claimed millions of lives. However, scientists were quick to create and issue a vaccine to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

As the coronavirus continues to affect the world, several companies have started issuing vaccine mandates for their employees. Numerous employees have declared they would rather quit their job than receive the vaccine, but how serious are they? 

Coronavirus Vaccine Mandates And Employee Pushback

In a recent survey funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, a sample of about 1,000 workers were asked what they would do if vaccines were required by their employer. The survey contained several possible actions to choose from, and the respondents could check as many boxes as they liked. Shockingly, 48% of respondents who said they were “vaccine-hesitant” indicated they would quit or look for another job if they were forced to get the vaccine. 

Similar polls have reported an identical trend in the data. For example, a Kaiser Family Foundation survey indicated that 50% of respondents would quit their job if a vaccine was required by their employer. Although several respondents claimed they would leave their job because of a vaccine mandate, the data tells a different story. 

However, there are several people on the opposing side of the survey too. In the survey initially mentioned, around 63% of respondents admitted that a vaccine mandate would make them feel safer and not prompt them to quit. 

Vaccines Mandates And Employee Cooperation 

It’s becoming increasingly popular for companies to issue a vaccine mandate. The numbers prove that people would instead get the vaccine than lose access to a weekly paycheck. 

For example, Houston Methodist Hospital required its 25,000 employees to get the vaccine by June, and only 153 people (or .6%) were either fired or resigned. The same was true for the Jewish Home Family in New Jersey, which saw only five of its 527 workers quit because of the vaccine mandate. 

Even in states with relatively low vaccination numbers, employees choose to get the vaccine instead of losing their job. In conservative rural Alabama, the Hanceville Nursing & Rehab Center only saw six of its 260 employees leave because of a vaccine mandate. 

Other companies, like Delta Airlines, issued a $200 surcharge on monthly health insurance plans for unvaccinated workers instead of a vaccine mandate. No matter what companies do, it’s clear employees would rather suck it up and get the vaccine than lose their monthly income.

Costco Putting Limitations On ‘Key Items,’ Here’s What Made The List

Why retail giant Costco is putting limits on purchases of some essential goods, and how this latest restriction differs from previous shortages.

Costco Putting Limitations On ‘Key Items,’ Here’s What Made The List

At the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, retail and grocery stores placed purchase limitations on essential products like toilet paper, as several customers were stockpiling. However, as the pandemic got under control, these limits were lifted. Now there are different problems retailers like Costco face, causing it to re-issue purchase restrictions on certain items. 

Costco Limits The Amount Of Essential Items Customers Can Buy

On Thursday, Costco’s Chief Financial Officer Richard Galanti announced the company is “putting some [purchase] limitations on key items.” Some of these “key items” Galanti referred to include toilet paper, paper towels, bottled water, and high-demand cleaning products. However, during his announcement about Costco’s new purchase limitations, Galanti did not specify how many of each item customers would be able to buy. Some people believe the restrictions will be similar to Costco’s first round of purchase limits. 

A year ago, Costco limited the amount of toilet paper, cleaning products, etc., customers could buy because “there was a shortage of merchandise,” Galanti explained. When the pandemic first struck, people were stockpiling products because they feared the coronavirus. Due to the excessive numbers of people buying items like paper towels, toilet paper, etc., Costco was forced to limit how much people could buy. However, today the reason for purchase limitations at Costco is different. 

Why Is Costco Limiting Item Purchases? 

Despite the vaccine and declining case numbers, the coronavirus is still the reason for purchase restrictions at Costco. Galanti explained that there’s “plenty of merchandise, but there’s two or three-week delays on getting it delivered.” Apparently, there’s “a limit on short term changes to trucking and delivery needs of the suppliers” at Costco. 

According to Galanti, Costco’s supply chain is challenged by the pandemic, which has led to increased costs similar as well. Products deemed “essential” aren’t the only items that have lengthy delivery wait times. Galanti also revealed that Costco’s private label brands are struggling to meet the stores’ demand. With that, Galanti asks that customers be patient with online orders and in-store stock as Costco continues to solve the issue. 

What Is Costco Doing To Improve The Situation?

There is a positive note to the purchase limit situation at Costco, as the company is taking steps to ensure customers can buy what they need. Galanti announced that Costco is now ordering shipments earlier than usual to ensure its stores are fully stocked. 

Another step Costco took to prevent long-term purchase limitations is chartering three ocean vessels. Galanti noted the ocean vessels will transport containers between Asia and the United States and Canada, carrying “800 to 1,000 containers at a time. “
