NY Gov. Hochul Backs Off Covid Shot Mandate For MTA Workers Due to Staff Shortages

New York Governor Kathy Hochul's (D) plan to fire all unvaxxed workers and replace them with foreigners for refusing the so-called vaccines "from god" is running into a roadblock.

From Advance Local, "Hochul: No plans for MTA COVID vaccine mandate due to crew shortages":
On Monday, Gov. Kathy Hochul said the state doesn't plan to require coronavirus vaccines for MTA workers, claiming that a vaccine mandate would only exacerbate the existing crew shortages that have prompted reduced service.

Currently, MTA workers are required to be vaccinated or submit to weekly coronavirus testing, like other New York State employees.

"Our concern, as you mention shortages of crews, is the individuals who will not want to participate in a mandatory vaccination program will be individuals who would exacerbate that problem," Hochul said. "We do not want to make it impossible for the New York City workforce to have the proper transportation channels they're accustomed to."

"We can't do anything to create a dynamic where there are no trains picking people up for their jobs in the morning or getting healthcare workers to their jobs in hospitals. So that's the calibration I keep referring to and we're going to stay with the plan for now," she added.

On Sunday, the MTA announced that the city's trains and subways will be running on reduced service schedules from Monday, Dec. 27, through Thursday, Dec. 30, due to staffing shortages prompted by coronavirus cases among crew members.
The double and triple jabbed are spreading omicron like crazy.

The shots' failure to stop spread, which we've known about for months now, undermines the entire case for these mandates. The fact they're failing against omicron completely devastates it.
According to a report from THE CITY, 169 subway workers tested positive for the coronavirus during a seven-day period ending Thursday, Dec. 16, more than double the number of subway workers who had tested positive two weeks prior.
Note how they don't say whether they were "vaccinated."

If they were unvaxxed, we all know that would be the entire story.
As justification for the lack of a vaccine mandate among MTA workers, Hochul cited the fact that approximately 80% of the agency's employees have already been vaccinated and the nature of their jobs include limited face-to-face interaction with the public.
Note, twenty percent is more than enough to bring the system to its knees.
"We have 80% of MTA workers already vaccinated," Hochul said. "MTA workers -- the people who drive the buses are isolated, if you operate a train you're isolated, even a toll collector is isolated. We did this calculation on examining how much exposure there would be to the public and we're satisfied with our decision."
And yet despite all that "isolation" and around 80% vaxxed omicron is still spreading like wildfire...

If these mandates can be halted on one front, they should be able to be halted on all fronts under the equal protections clause.

I've seen multiple unconfirmed reports on social media claiming hospitals are now working to hire back the nurses they fired for being unvaxxed.

Is the dam about to break?
