(AbsoluteNews.com) – President Joe Biden has issued a number of vaccine mandates over the last few months, but court battles are underway to permanently stop the directives. In the meantime, a number of companies have halted their mandates.
Amtrak CEO Bill Flynn recently announced the company is temporarily suspending mandatory vaccines. The decision came after federal courts ruled against the Biden administration’s directive ordering all federal contractors, healthcare workers and companies with more than 100 employees to put COVID-19 vax mandates in place. Amtrak recently announced roughly 95% of its staff, all but about 500 employees, have received at least one jab.

General Electric and Union Pacific also suspended their vaccine mandates. Hospitals across the country have suspended the directives as well. The decision comes as companies are having a difficult time filling job openings. In some cases, workers have quit their jobs rather than give in to the long arm of the federal government by getting the jab. Houston Attorney David Barron said most employers can’t lose as much as 10% of their workforce without suffering serious damages.
The suspensions are a major blow to Biden’s agenda. He’d hoped to use the mandates as a way to force Americans into submission. Like many of his other schemes, it has ended in failure.
