As states continue to fight against the vaccine mandates that the Biden Administration has implemented on private businesses, many people have found themselves out of a job.
Many GOP-controlled states have increased unemployment insurance for these people as another measure to fight the mandate battle. Kansas, the only split state government to approve this increase to unemployment insurance, did not let their politics get in the way of helping their residents.
The Daily Wire reports, "Arkansas, Florida, Iowa, Kansas, and Tennessee have extended unemployment benefits for workers fired for not getting vaccinated against COVID-19."
Wyoming, Wisconsin, and Missouri are currently working on similar protections in their states.
Since the announcement of the vaccine mandates on federal and private workers, states have continued to push back on federal overreach. The mandate was halted in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. However, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals ended the stay and allowed the mandate to continue.
Regardless of the legal battle, many businesses adopted the mandated regulation for their workers, negatively impacting many Americans. At the initial announcement of the stay issued by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, The Biden Administration instructed the American people to disregard the court and continue with the mandate.
Many businesses, including The Daily Wire, are currently fighting the legal battle against these mandates. The fight is scheduled to move to the Federal Supreme Court next year.
After President Biden announced on Monday that there was "no federal solution to the pandemic," many hoped the vaccine mandates would be stopped. The president admitted that states needed to determine the proper course of action for their residents' best interests. Many states currently do not believe that the vaccine mandates are in their best interests, and given the opportunity, would terminate them.
