(Worthy News) – Fearful that the Biden administration’s private sector vaccine mandate could force commercial truckers off the road and exacerbate disruptions to an already backlogged supply chain, the U.S. trucking industry is demanding an exemption for drivers, amid signs their concerns are being heeded by officials.

“The U.S. is already facing unprecedented supply chain disruptions and delays due to many factors, including significant labor shortages, production shutdowns, a shortage of raw materials, and pent-up consumer demand,” American Trucking Associations President and CEO Chris Spear said, and ATA data “shows that a vaccine mandate may very well further cripple the supply chain throughout the country by forcing up to 13% of drivers to leave the industry entirely,”

The Biden mandate requires private employers with 100 employees or more to require COVID vaccination or, failing that, weekly testing as a condition of employment. It imposes fines on those that don’t comply under the oversight of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) within the U.S. Department Labor. [ Source: Just the News (Read More…) ]
