Starbucks has dropped their vaccine mandate after the Supreme Court ruled against Biden’s vaccine and testing requirements. The notoriously woke company announced the surprising change in a memo sent to workers according to Associated Press.
“We respect the court’s ruling and will comply,” Starbucks CEO John Culver said.
Culver had previously said Starbucks had a responsibility “to do whatever we can to help keep you safe and create the safest work environment possible” when he announced on January 3 that they would require all employees to be vaccinated in February.
Employees would have faced weekly COVID test requirements if they chose to remain unvaccinated.
Last week, General Electric said that it would ditch the Biden overreach as well.
The Supreme Court ruled that Biden’s vaccine and testing mandate for businesses with 100 plus employees was unconstitutional last week. This does not, however, stop businesses from implementing their own mandates.
“OSHA has never before imposed such a mandate. Nor has Congress. Indeed, although Congress has enacted significant legislation addressing the COVID–19 pandemic, it has declined to enact any measure similar to what OSHA has promulgated here,” the high court stated.
If it wasn’t overturned, Biden’s mandate would have affected 80 million Americans.
Starbucks employs 228,000 people across the United States.
