We’ve seen numerous instances of employees standing up to their employer regarding vaccine mandates. Southwest Airlines actually had to reverse its policy because of so many disruptions to service. A picture was circulating for a while of a Southwest plane with a Gadsden Flag hanging out of a cockpit window. Pretty Epic.
Here in Los Angeles, the City Council has ordered vaccine mandates for all City employees. This has included both the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Absolutely. Justified? Potentially. But no one at the Los Angeles Times or on the Los Angeles City Council is asking about the inappropriateness of legislating what anyone does with their body. These same people who were chanting “My body, my choice!” just two short years
