What are your thoughts on the Cummins Vaccine mandates they are working to enforce?

This is out and out extortion pure and simple. Being forced to take something that you can't sue if you die or get sick from it. Yea try to find the same job with the same or better pay at 50 years old and older. We are going to rue the day we allowed this to happen, they are ki----g us and we can't see it or won't see it.
There is no weekly testing option for federal contractors. You can file for a religious exemption but good luck dancing thru those hoops. Plenty of open jobs in the world if you dont want to get the vaccine then do everyone a big favor and find a new role. If you are fired for not getting a vaccine that is mandated you do not qualify for unemployment.
Right now the govt. put a hold on it because of the courts after a few wins from the judge putting a stay on it. I hope that cummins don't do it, because I'm not taking this jab for one because I've already had it and was to me just like the flu but took longer for me to get the crud out of my lungs. What I read is that we may not have a choice of being tested or not because of contracts but if we are to be tested if not taking the vaccine then who is paying for it and where will it be done? The smartest thing is for it to be done at the plant where the people work because if they have to go to an offsite place there is so many issues of scheduling and/or enough time to be scheduled. Will this be on our time or company time for this and what happens when they don't have tests and/or they have no one to give these tests?
You see it's a problem that they haven't looked at long enough and should consider. Also last point, do they truly want to test all these people? What happens during the testing you find out that 40 people out of the 60 for the dept. has the virus? You have to send them home for 10 days with pay and now what, you're dept. is able to function for at least 10 days. And if you don't think that vaccinated people won't be tested think again, vaccinated have been getting the virus also and just like how they said once you get the vaccine no mask they changed their mind, it will be the same thing with mandatory testing for everyone instead of the unvaccinated.
its about time
