This adds insult to injury for the New Yorkers on the brink of losing their jobs next week.
On September 27th, New York State healthcare workers in hospitals and nursing homes who choose medical freedom will be terminated.
No jab, no job.
Despite the fact that the experimental COVID-19 injections don’t prevent contraction or transmission of the virus, proof of COVID-19 jab is required to keep your job.
It’s not about health.
It’s only about compliance to an authoritative state.
With nearly 20 percent of New York state healthcare workers refusing the jab, that puts extreme pressure on the medical system.
As winter approaches, you can expect a seasonal surge of respiratory viruses in New York.
And healthcare facilities will soon become severely short-staffed.
But Governor Kathy Hochul has a plan to solve that.
She wants to hire foreign workers to replace qualified Americans.
Talk about a slap in the face to hard-working Americans.
Fully-capable healthcare workers who spent 18 months on the COVID-19 frontlines are now kicked to the curb.
Yesterday’s heroes become today’s unemployed.
But I wouldn’t expect less from a Democrat governor who has proven herself to be the female version of Andrew Cuomo.
Democrats hate Americans.
They don’t want you to have a job if you refuse to bow down to their demands.

Daily dose of idiocy from @GovKathyHochul: we’re sending home perfectly capable and amazing essential workers who showed up through the pandemic and shipping in foreign workers to take their place. This makes ZERO sense!! 😡 https://t.co/gavmpBlwHj

Governor Hochul expressed her disdain for New Yorkers who choose not to be a Big Pharma lab rat.
She also said, "I can't imagine the guilt" unvaccinated healthcare workers must be feeling for "endangering" patients, staff and the healthcare and nursing home system.

The New York Post reported:
The nearly 20 percent of workers at hospitals and nursing homes who refuse to get vaccinated against COVID-19 will be replaced — potentially by foreigners — once the state’s mandate goes into effect next week, Gov. Kathy Hochul said Wednesday.
Hochul told reporters in Rochester that she hoped that all unvaccinated employees would meet Monday’s deadline.
“To those who won’t, we’ll be replacing people. And I have a plan that’s going to be announced very shortly,” she said.
“We’ve identified a whole range of opportunities we have to help supplement them.”
Hochul said state officials were “working closely with various hospital systems to find out where we can get other individuals to come in and supplement places like nursing homes.”
“We’re also reaching out to the Department of State to find out about visas for foreign workers, on a limited basis, to bring more nurses over here,” she said.
As of Sept. 15, 19 percent of New York’s hospital workers remained unvaccinated, according to state Health Department figures.
For nursing homes, the number was 18 percent as of Wednesday.
After Monday, employers can fire unvaccinated workers who don’t have a “valid medical exemption” for getting the shots.
Employees who claim a religious exemption are also off the hook until at least Oct. 12, due to a temporary restraining order issued by a Utica federal judge after 17 health care workers filed a religious-freedom suit over the mandate.
