DeSantis: Covid Vaccine Is A “Personal Choice” And Biden | Video [Video]

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said he strongly opposes vaccine mandates, calling it “basically a personal decision,” and said he would welcome to Florida police and firefighters who have been fired over refusal to get vaccines. GOV. RON DESANTIS: Fortunately, we’ve been able to fight back very effectively against mandates imposed by, for example, local governments against police and firefighters. Maria, these people we’ve been hailing as heroes, the nurses we’ve said have been heroes this whole time. They’ve been working day in and day out. They couldn’t do their job on zoom, they had to be there, and they did it with honor and integrity. Now you have people that want to kick them out of their job over this shot? Which is basically a personal decision. And you’re right, what Biden’s doing is unconstitutional. He does not have the authority to do this. But what it will do on a practical level in addition to being unconstitutional, in addition to taking away people’s personal choices, is it will wreak havoc in the economy because even if a small percentage of these folks end up losing their jobs, or voluntarily walking away, you’re going to have huge disruptions in medical, in logistics, in law enforcement. And so in Florida, our policy’s very clear, we’re going to have a special session, and we’re going to say nobody should lose their job based off these injections. It’s a choice you can make, but we want to make sure we’re protecting your jobs and your livelihood…I think it’s important to point out on a scientific basis most of those first responders have is had covid and recovered, so they have strong protection. And is so I think that influences their decision on a lot of in that they have already had it and recovered. So they’re making no accommodations for that. They’re still pretending like that doesn’t even exist, so that’s really, really troubling when you see that. I can tell you, Maria, in Florida not only are we going to want to protect the law enforcement and all the jobs, we’re actually actively working to recruit out-of-state law enforcement because we do have needs in our police and sheriffs’ departments. So in the next legislative session, I’m going to hopefully sign legislation that gives a $5,000 bonus to any out-of-state law enforcement that relocates in Florida. So NYPD, Minneapolis, Seattle, if you’re not being treated well, we’ll treat you better here. You can fill important needs for us, and we’ll compensate you as a result.

What’s behind the lackluster September jobs report [Video]

Bullish business leaders, economists and policymakers were banking on a September surge of hiring with the end of extended unemployment benefits, schools reopening and continued vaccinations. But those bets went bust after the latest release of monthly employment figures showed another month of lackluster hiring.“Many people had Sept. 1 marked on their calendars as the day when things would go back to normal — when they would return to their offices, their kids would return to school and they’d head back to their favorite bars. But instead, the recovery sputtered,” said Julia Pollak, a labor economist with hiring site ZipRecruiter. Continued virus impacts dragged down expectations for a hot September jobs report Friday, with only 194,000 jobs added, versus 500,000 expected. President Joe Biden put a positive spin on the numbers in a news conference Friday afternoon, highlighting the upbeat statistics: The unemployment rate is down to 4.8 percent, unemployment for Black Americans and Hispanics is down and the drop of 496,000 in long-term unemployment is the second-largest single-month decline in history, with the largest being in July.“We’re actually making real progress,” Biden said. “Maybe it doesn’t seem fast enough. I’d like to see it faster, and we’re going to make it faster. Maybe it doesn’t appear dramatic enough. We’re making consistent steady progress, though.”But it’s still the delta economy. Even if the variant has crested, the totals are still high, with the recent seven-day new case average down from its peak of 175,000 to just under 100,000. With children under 12 unvaccinated and the risk of even vaccinated adults catching and transmitting the more contagious variant, Americans aren’t eager to go out for shopping sprees or to dine out, or to work the cash registers or clean hotel rooms. Economists were hoping to see recovery in sectors hardest hit by the pandemic — but those gains failed to materialize, with just 56,000 jobs added in retail last month and 74,000 in leisure and hospitality. Female labor force participation was expected to go up as reopened schools eased child care issues for some, but the number actually fell from 56.2 percent to 55.9 percent. Vice President Kamala Harris said Friday in remarks at a child care center in Little Falls, New Jersey, that “child care deserts” in America created “clear and well-known disparities” between families that have only become more pronounced during the pandemic.“There was a certain level of enlightenment about issues … failures and fractures and fissures in our systems for a long time,” Harris said. “But it became apparent one of them was the accessibility and affordability of child care and also the disproportionate responsibility that women and families take when the resources are stretched thin.All data is taken from the source: http://nbcnews.comArticle Link: https://www.nbcnews.com/business/economy/what-s-behind-lackluster-september-jobs-report-n1281131#said #newsbbc #newstodayoncnn #newsworld #usnewsworldreport#newstodayinusa #
