After ruining the lives of NYC municipal workers who refused the COVID-19 shot, Mayor Eric Adams lifted the COVID-19 jab mandate this week.
NYC Lifts Municipal Worker COVID-19 Jab Mandate, But The Damage Is Done
The Democrat mayor felt no remorse for his despicable actions against his constituents.
In fact, Adams said he would reimpose vaccine mandates on New Yorkers.
Adams commented that city workers can’t ‘do whatever they want’ during an emergency.
“There may be another time that we’re going to have to do mandates again because these viruses are not going away,” Adams stated during an appearance on Friday’s broadcast of Caribbean Power Jam Radio’s “The Reset Show.”

He continued, “And so, those who made the determination that, no, I still want to come into a work environment and I’m not going to be vaccinated, no, I want to still ride the trains. I want to do whatever I want. That just wasn’t right. That wasn’t right. And they made a decision and the law was on our side that said we could mandate. And so they were removed. Now that we’re seeing a normalization of COVID, there may be another time that we’re going to have to do mandates again because these viruses are not going away. We’re dealing with a whole new environment of what we are fighting against, some of these viruses. They made the decision not to be vaccinated. They lost their jobs. We see the need now to lift the mandate, but those who lost their jobs could re-apply for their jobs, but they’ve got to re-apply just like everyone else.”
Although Adams lifted the city worker COVID-19 jab mandate, terminated employees aren’t guaranteed their old positions and won’t receive back pay.
It’s a slap in the face to individuals who dedicated years to their communities and refused to submit to medical tyranny.
“Their back pay is the pay they got when they got another job somewhere. I mean, New Yorkers should not be paying for someone that wasn’t working. And they made a decision. People made a decision to not take the vaccine when they were supposed to,” Adams added.
“There’s not going to be any back pay,” Adams emphasized.

As for the process of reinstating workers who were fired or pushed out of their jobs under the now-rescinded mandate, “We are going to try to be as fair as possible,” Adams said. Reinstatement for those who apply within a limited timeframe will be at the discretion of the hiring agency and will restore seniority and salaries, but will not include any other kind of financial restitution.
How many former workers view the terms of reinstatement as being fair? None that I know of. In social media posts and conversations I’ve had with numerous former City workers, the universal reaction has been negative.
