Economic Effects
from Vaccine Mandates and Lockdowns

Forced Vaccine Effects

On September 9, 2021, the President of the United States issued a vaccine mandate roll-out. Click here for a copy of the President's Executive Order. Employer-forced vaccinations began without congressional or judicial approval. Under Constitutional liberties, the Tenth Amendment, and several legal precedents, an individual has a right to refuse medical treatment.

 

The government also joined with the Department of Labor and OSHA to enact the Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS). The mandate dictated that all federal employees, federal contractors, and businesses that employ more than 100 people would be forced to comply with forced vax-or-test measures.

If you are forced to take the vaccination and there is an adverse reaction, the vaccine manufacturers have legal immunity from being sued. Patients and workers who have been forced to take the vaccine and experience adverse reactions are then faced with medical issues but no financial assistance. They can also be faced with no longer being physically able to do daily tasks, household duties, and parenting which puts a strain on their family and close friends. Potentially this time and financial strain is for the lifetime of the victim. While the majority of people currently experience little to no side effects, the majority of people also survive Covid-19. People should have the personal right to choose what risks they are willing to take. They are the ones who live with the results of the risks they take.

Cost of Forced Testing

Cost of Forced Testing:

Many employees in the US would be forced into expensive non-subsidized weekly tests if they refused the COVID-19 vaccine. Covid-19 diagnostic tests can range between $32 to $478 per test. If just a quarter of the workforce tests weekly for $32 a test it will cost employees over $5 billion. This can cost an average working person between almost $100 to $2,000 per month.

ETS and Vaccine Mandate Fines:

  • Employers that do not comply with ETS face up to $13,653 for each violation.

  • Employers that willfully or repeatedly violate the standard can be fined up to $136,532.

  • However, the Build Back Better Act, if enacted, would raise the maximum fine to $700,000.

Effect on Workers

Frontline medical personal, who worked tirelessly during the onset of the “pandemic” are now being fired for refusing to get vaccinated. Military personnel who served years in active duty or reserve are now looking at either being forced to take the vaccine or leaving without any retirement. Millions of other workers in different industries face the same outcome.

Macro Effect on US Economy

Many employees as a result of vaccine mandates have quit or been fired from their jobs and joined the hordes of unemployed on government subsidies and unemployment. This decreases workers which is a strain on small businesses as they are forced to compete with government unemployment checks. This has driven up payrolls which have, in turn, increased the cost of goods. Many small businesses that lack the advantages of automation have closed their doors. Businesses are scrambling to survive, and everywhere you turn there are “help wanted” or “hiring” signs.

 

Some businesses that are forced to follow the mandates are left stranded with not enough workers. States issued $794 billion in unemployment benefits from March 2020 to July 2021. Federal law raised unemployment from $300 a week to $600 per week. Much of the workforce opted for free unemployment checks instead of working for less money. As a result of lockdowns, and massive unemployment, the government has printed an unprecedented amount of money.

Inflation

At the time of writing since March 2020 this is just a few examples of inflation:

  • Used Cars 45%

  • Gasoline 109% (which is used to transport most products you buy)

  • Lumber 172%

  • Coffee 103%

  • Beef 110%

  • Metals 97%

  • Computer Chips 25%

  • Cotton 82%

  • Copper, Plastics, Resin are all over 50%

Supply Chain Effects

On top of everything, the trucking industry is suffering, causing supply chain issues across the nation. The $791.7 billion industry hauls 72.5% of all freight transported in the United States and employs about 6% of all full-time workers. However, an aging workforce + recent surge in labor shortages + gas and steel inflation rates of over 100% affecting foreign product import costs has caused massive supply chain cost issues. It is estimated that about 37% of truck drivers would leave or retire due to vaccine mandates.

In summary, the vaccine mandates are creating an economic crisis that will affect generations to come and eat away at the retirement savings of the elderly generations. Thankfully, states are implementing their rights under the Tenth Amendment and filing lawsuits directly challenging the vaccine mandates.
