Happy Valentine’s Day as Mayor Eric Adams fires over 1,400 NYC employees over forced vaccination ultimatum

On Valentine’s Day, Monday February 14th, New York City’s mayor Eric Adams fired more than 1,400 workers who refused to surmise to his continuing enforcement of “No Jab, No Job” policies that began with his predecessor Bill De Blasio. While this may sound like a cruel joke, it is the current reality for many who may have to leave the city they love in order to earn an honest living.

The then candidate remain maskless surrounded by countless of other maskless individuals during the activity despite statewide mask mandate.

COVID-19 vaccine mandates have become a hallmark for tyranny and government overreach in United States and around the world. For example, freedom loving Canada has literally turned into a totalitarian country as it’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is willing to physically harm peaceful protesting citizens using law enforcement, rather than agree with the overwhelming consensus to end vaccine mandates. While in NYC, mayor Eric Adam’s flexed his powers by firing countless of city workers.

Among the city workers forced out of their jobs due to their convictions and refusal of vaccination were 36 NYPD personnel, 25 Fire Department workers and 914 Department of Education staffers according to the mayor’s office. This comes at a time that the Department of Education of New York City is suffering from severe staff shortages.

Certainly, the 1,430 workers who lost their jobs are a minority as they represent less than 1 per cent of the city’s 370,000 employees. This is a much smaller number than expected as many caved into the mayor’s pressure of losing their jobs to get the jabs as the Friday February 11th deadline came.

The city sent notices in late January to up to 4,000 workers, saying they had to show proof they got at least two doses of the vaccine or else they’d lose their jobs. Three-quarters of those workers had already been on leave without pay for months, having missed an earlier deadline for getting vaccinated in order to stay on the job. 

The number then dropped to roughly 3,400 — and then to 1,430 firings, officials said.

In one category, there were 2,400 veteran employees on leave without pay who had chosen not to renew their their health insurance and had not shown any evidence suggesting they were vaccinated. In the end, more than half – 1,428 – of those city workers did not get double-jabbed and were fired.

Around 1,000 — or 40 per cent — showed proof of receiving at least one jab at the 11th hour and were able to go back to to work, officials said.  

Meanwhile, 1,000 people classified as new employees, who were hired in August of last summer had initially failed to prove their double vaccination status. However, only two failed to get their shots and were fired, officials said.

Adams thanked those for getting vaccinated, crediting them for the city’s high double vaccination rate, which is now at 76 percent, or 6,331,124 residents. This despite more evidence of vaccinated individuals becoming infected in greater numbers than non-vaccinated.

“I was a once devoted democrat, but these vax mandates have opened my eyes that these politicians don’t care about us, they only care about money and power… We’ve been voting blindly and now we’re paying the price”, said Yvette Rodriguez who participated in the November 20th, 2021, Freedom Rally held in New York City.
