Unpaid leave for unvaccinated healthcare workers is slightly better than firing them, I guess.
But in making this move, it seems Democrat Governor Dan McKee is only shining more on the arbitrary power he’s claiming to have:
They will be placed on leave without pay during that time and barred from working in a state-licensed health-care facility until they get inoculated against COVID-19, according to an email from the director of administration to state workers.
If they are still unvaccinated by Dec. 15, “they will be subject to progressive discipline, up to and including termination for failing to meet legally mandated conditions of employment.”
Remember that phrase: “progressive discipline.” I expect we’ll be hearing more and more about that as our state slides down the left-wing slope.
And notice, by the way, that the phrases “natural immunity” and “antibody test” appear nowhere in the article. Why is our government (and media) refusing to believe in science?
