Time To Boycott Delta Airlines?

Sick policy

Delta Airlines is charging employees $200 each month to keep their job at the company. Employees who don’t get the jab have to pay a lot of money to stay employed.

According to the company, there is nothing wrong with this. They say each hospital visit for COVID-19 costs $40,000. They are just saving money…

This is nothing but a sick policy. They chose the wrong way to do things.

Pfizer and Moderna will sure profit from this.

Hospital visits are never supposed to reach $40,000 unless patients are forced to undergo a surgery.

This is supposed to be a free country. Maybe we should boycott the company.

The Associated Press reported:

Delta Air Lines will charge employees on the company health plan $200 a month if they fail to get vaccinated against COVID-19, a policy the airline’s top executive says is necessary because the average hospital stay for the virus costs the airline $50,000.

CEO Ed Bastian said that all employees who have been hospitalized for the virus in recent weeks were not fully vaccinated.

The airline said Wednesday that it also will stop extending pay protection to unvaccinated workers who contract COVID-19 on Sept. 30, and will require unvaccinated workers to be tested weekly beginning Sept. 12, although Delta will cover the cost. They will have to wear masks in all indoor company settings.

Politico adds:

Experts say that the decision to pressure workers to vaccinate by upping their health care costs — rather than requiring they get the vaccine — makes it easier for employers to rationalize the policy to employees who are reluctant to get a shot.

“The fact that they didn’t choose a mandate might speak more to their employee base’s sentiment about vaccination and possibly their customer sentiment,” said Laura Boudreau, an assistant professor of economics at Columbia Business School who studies working conditions.

“If you look at the policy itself, they’re basically trying to not employ a de jure mandate but a de facto one by making it difficult for employees to maintain a non-vaccinated statement. Some companies, like Delta, are reluctant to go so far as to mandate formally, but reading these memos, these are de facto mandates.”

It’s likely that additional employers will adopt a similar policy as an easily defensible, middle-of-the-road approach to getting their workforce vaccinated in the throes of the Delta variant, not to mention additional ones.
