lol, the supreme court blocked the OSHA vaccine mandate for large employers. 🤣 🤣
Welcome to whose pandemic is it anyway!? The economic system where the public health protections are made up and voting doesn't matter.
also, implementing this across the country would have also been a disaster. Employers who don't know how to set their wifi password would all of a sudden be holding onto employee medical info, and they would have little time to implement it.
The idea that OSHA can't set workplace standards and instead just enforces them is bizarre to me. Does this overturn state OSHA requirements for masks as well?
Unlike her conservative colleagues, Justice Elena Kagan was reluctant to substitute the court’s judgment for that of the occupational health experts at OSHA.
“Why in the world would courts decide this question?” Kagan asked during oral arguments.
This is the question. I can't believe Kagan was the one to put it forward, but yes why are courts deciding this?
@polymerwitch so it's allowing for bouncing back to the states, as well as congress? either way, wtf
@polymerwitch *thinks of all the fucked-up shit that's happened at a state level over the past several decades, including in CA*
@polymerwitch The federal level response to handling the pandemic is becoming like the outcome of Bush v. Gore, it seems. "Sure, what we just did makes no sense, but have you considered that we can do it anyway?"
@polymerwitch I'm not sure there's any relevance to that comparison, other than aaaaa in terms of generalized statist fuckery
