$10k buys a lot of guns and ammo, trucker bros.

How about no job and a nice big case of COVID for the pro-plague morons.

It seems to be applied to all of their drivers and over the course of next year and more of an incentive to stick around with a side-bonus of 'plague rats need not apply'.  The trucking industry is in a flux and things like this are going to get more common as they try to keep their workers and lure new ones.

How about whatever works? How about we're all in this together?

This is great. I wish my company gave a bonus like this for doing the right thing. I have crappy old motorcycles in my garage that need fixing and dogs that need legs amputated.

Is anyone pro vax really mad at this or just kinda jealous?

I'm pro vax and actually mildly irked.

My parents got their shots as soon as they could, then started complaining that the hold-outs were "being bribed" like this.  It got to the point that they almost refused to get the booster, saying they'll just wait until they get paid.

It's causing me to kinda favor the stick over the carrot these days.

Check, call, or raise, but you can only do one of them.

All our bribes at work apply retroactively to those who already got their shot. At least

Work considered even adding a small % above for those vaccinated before the policy was confirmed.

Jesus McSordid: How about a bullet in the skull and a cremation for the pro-plague subhuman.


The time for understanding has passed. It is time for a final solution to the anti-vaccination question.

Not anymore. The unvaccinated are life unworthy of life, and an existential threat to the planet. (The involuntarily unvaccinated are not until proven voluntary).  They must be liquidated by the proletariat.

I'll settle for putting them in a tent in the hospital parking lot and giving them all the Magic Dirt and fake horse paste they can eat.

I want $10k for doing the right thing, too.

String raise. No $10000 for you, truckers. Sorry.

I'm mildly irked as well, but in much the same way as I'm mildly irked about not being eligible for any (potential) student loan forgiveness because I paid what little I had myself. Which is to say, I'd like to have been rewarded with cash, but I wasn't, so whatever. Let's make things better, I'll deal.

I'd have gone with a live straddle but that is just me.

What is that, about $33.50 American?

The belief in that statement requires that the person hearing and being receptive to it to have an iota of empathy for anyone not in the mirror. Honestly, that much among most of the population combined is a really, really tall order.

/Sorry, I'm wildly jaded today.
