Southwest CEO "I Am Not In Favor of Biden's Vaccine Mandate"

 No one loses their job for refusing to get the vaccine. Southwest CEO blames Biden for Vaccine mandate: 

“I’m not in favor of that, never have been. But the executive order from Biden mandates that all federal employees, and then all federal contractors, which covers all the major airlines, have to have a mandate.” 

Southwest CEO denies massive flight cancellations were related to vaccine mandates, blames ‘absenteeism’. 

Southwest CEO says he is AGAINST vaccine mandate, but defers to Biden’s federal mandate (which does not actually exist)

In response, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order on Monday which prohibits any entity - including private businesses, from imposing vaccine mandates on either employees or customers.

"The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective, and our best defense against the virus, but should remain voluntary and never forced," said Abbott in a statement. The rule follows several executive orders Abbott issued over the summer banning local governments and school districts from mask or vaccination mandates - with $1,000 fines for those who fail to comply.

Last week, Southwest announced that its 56,000-person workforce would need to be fully vaccinated with the Covid-19 jab by Dec. 8 in order to remain employed - an announcement which came days after other carriers (including American Airlines, Alaska Airlines and JetBlue Airways) announced similar measures, according to CNBC.

Doubling down on the airline's claim that widespread flight disruptions over the past four days weren't related to an employee protest over the mandate, Kelly blamed "absenteeism" - which, we're quite frankly
