They had plenty of time to get the covid shot. So it's the people's own damn fault for getting it.

The terrible corporate behavior is a separate issue. If you are unvaccinated and get Covid, it's your own damn fault.

If they would have found a way to distribute the vaccine in junk food, we wouldn't have these issues.

I'm boycotting Frito Lay in solidarity with their abused workers.

Yes, I know that my actions won't make the slightest different, but they make me feel virtuous, and in 2021, that is the most important thing, right?

They were working mandatory overtime at 84 hours a week so they did not, in fact, have plenty of time to get the shot.

We absolutely should be spending money in ways that dont make us feel morally repugnant. It doesn't matter if it has no effect on a bigger picture, as long as it feels in line with your moral values.

Personally, I try to use this as yet another reason not to feed my chip addiction.  The real reason is my 2020 weight has to go (I gained *how* much?).

If they notice a dip in profits thanks to people not buying, they will have to fund a PR campaign to whitewash the evil and convince their customers that it is a non-issue.  This is certainly cheaper than paying a dime more to employees.  And it will work.  You could try shooting the CEO, but then you'll never feel virtuous again.  So win-win?

Read up on why workers are striking before you chide them for not taking the time to get a shot. Hint: 12 hour workdays, 7 days a week, no time off except to go home and sleep.

There is a Walmart with a pharmacy offering covid vaccinations across the freeway from the plant. Being unvaccinated is their own damn fault.

Wow, a lot of people here who think a factory worker's life is supposed to just be work, go home, come back and work. "12 hour days, 7 days a week? That gives those lazy bastards a whole 12 other hours in the day to get immunized!!! Now excuse me while I go take a nap, posting on Fark is wearing me out!".

I'm firmly on the side of people getting vaccinated, but the hate against those who haven't is getting a little frightening.

I'm not sure, but I'd be willing to guess that the loudest "let 'em die" people are the same personality types who didn't take any of this seriously in the first place.

Americans are just farked up.

Because non-medical excuses for not being vaccinated in July of 2021 are worthless.

Unless they're sleeping the other 12 hours each day, they have time to do other stuff. Just like voting for workers in the service industry in Texas.

12 hours a day, over the course of several months, for something that takes a few minutes and might save their lives and the lives of others.  This is a really, really stupid hill to literally die on.

I had a contract job where they scheduled me to work Friday til 1am then back in Saturday at 8am.  I told them I wouldn't keep doing that and they said 'you agreed to flexible hours'.  I said 'flexible as in I'll work any shift but not two back to back'.  Then I quit and the contract agency took me to lunch to try to negotiate staying on. I drank a lot of beer on their dime and said no.

Yeah but this isn't a comment aimed at goobers who won't vaccinate, it's aimed at grunt workers who want better wages.

Not the same thing by a mile.

In this case we are discussing goobers who won't get vaccinated that just happened to be getting abused by their employer.

It takes 5 minutes once you fight traffic, find parking, get inside, line up, wait your turn, and get called.
