The C.E.O of Carhartt has gone completely woke and is continuing the company's mandatory vaccination policy despite the Supreme Court striking down Biden's executive order. In an email to Carhartt's employees, C.E.O. Mark Valade wrote, "“We put workplace safety at the very top of our priority list and the Supreme Court’s recent ruling doesn’t impact that core value. We, and the medical community, continue to believe vaccines are necessary to ensure a safe working environment for every associate and even perhaps their households.”
Valade's policy doesn't make sense from a scientific standpoint. A recent study showed that the mRNA vaccines are "weak" in fighting off the Omicron variant. More importantly, data from areas like Israel, which have a high vaccination rate, are experiencing the largest surge in cases since the beginning of the pandemic. In Minnesota, the Governor, Attorney General and Secretary of State all recently tested positive for symptomatic COVID despite receiving the booster shot. The vaccines do not work!
What's more frustrating than the ignorance of science and data is that Carhartt built a brand around the rugged individualistic spirit that defines the working man of America. They appear to be the latest company overtaken by the woke mob.
I personally have worn Carhartt for years and am irate with the direction of the company's leadership. The brand is under assault by this foolishness. Joining me in voicing my concern as a long time customer. Let's stand for Carhartt employee rights. Contact Carhartt.
