No he's using osha regulations to do it, which is absurd, # 1 a disease doesn't apply as a workplace hazard, # 2 he's claiming it's an immediate emergency - which it's not because covid levels are far lower than they were(and no action was taken then), # 3 smallpox and covid cant possibly be compared, covid is not at all dangerous for anyone under 50 - a 99.99% survival rate is not an emergency and the supreme court will agree with that.Biden's vaccine mandate for workers is supported by legal precedents, experts say
On September 9, US President Joe Biden announced a plan to require all private businesses with 100 or more employees to ensure that their workers are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, or get tested weekly. The mandate will be implemented through an Emergency Temporary Standard to be issued by the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Experts predict legal challenges to be launched, but they say OSHA has the authority to protect workers' safety by requiring vaccinations, Bloomberg reports. The 1905 Supreme Court decision in Jacobson v. Massachusetts has also been widely cited, in which the court upheld the Cambridge, Massachusetts Board of Health’s authority to require vaccination against smallpox during an epidemic.
