The Republicans from the state of Wisconsin are circulating a bill, that would offer the workers to get unemployment benefits if they get fired or have lost their jobs due to the COVID crisis, as well as because of the requirements made by the employers, that have shifted overnight, also because of the COVID restrictions…
According to Fox6 News,
“GOP Rep. Ron Brooks is the legislator who introduced the bill.
In a news release on Thursday, Aug. 12, Brooks cited the current state law saying that people fired from or who quit a job are ineligible to receive unemployment until a certain amount of time passes.
But he claimed that individual liberty is the bedrock of a free republic and must be respected and protected.
“The decision of whether or not to get the COVID-19 vaccine is a decision to be made by individuals, not government bureaucrats or employers,” Brooks said.
The proposed legislation would apply to people fired for failing to comply with an employer’s vaccine mandate. In addition, workers who quit or were fired for not providing proof of vaccination would be eligible for unemployment benefits.
However, an official from Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers’ office said the Democratic governor would veto such a bill should it reach his desk.”
