Victory For The Southwest Airlines Employees – The Company Quits Their Plans To Punish Unvaccinated Employees
I remember this awesome picture, it was a political mocking picture in fact. The wealthiest men from the leading world industries, and the politicians, all suited-up, are sitting and playing monopoly, throwing their money and assets everywhere, while, the very board of the game is placed upon the backs of the poor citizens that are just being pushed till they can’t take any more.

And the thing is – if the poor people, the working-class citizens just decide and be united about what they should do, the whole game of the wealthiest will be over!
And that’s exactly what happened with the employees of Southwest Airlines, that decided they will go for a strike, for a “sick day out” every Friday, if the company still decided to punish (financially) the employees that didn’t get vaccinated.
Here’s more from CNBC.
“Southwest Airlines has scrapped a plan to put unvaccinated employees who have applied for but haven’t received a religious or medical exemption on unpaid leave starting by a federal deadline in December.
Southwest’s senior vice president of operations and hospitality, Steve Goldberg, and Julie Weber, vice president and chief people officer, wrote to staff on Friday that if employees’ requests for an exemption haven’t been approved by Dec. 8, they could continue to work while following mask and distancing guidelines until the request has been reviewed.
The company is giving employees until Nov. 24 to finish their vaccinations or apply for an exemption. It will continue paying them while the company reviews their requests, and said it will allow those who are rejected to continue working “as we coordinate with them on meeting the requirements (vaccine or valid accommodation).”
“This is a change from what was previously communicated. Initially, we communicated that these Employees would be put on unpaid leave and that is no longer the case.”
The company’s policy was successfully changed, just a few days before the deadline.
I guess they really saw through the will of the employees, and they saw that they were not bluffing.
