The CEO of JPMorgan Chase, Jamie Dimon, says that working remotely is no longer an option, and if his employees want a paycheck, they need to have several doses of a vaccine in order to access the building where they will work. Dimon has threatened to fire all workers who continue to refuse to get injected.
Dimon told CNBC that under the company’s vaccine mandate for its New York City headquarters, unvaccinated workers cannot enter its offices. Those workers also don’t have the option to remain unvaccinated and work from home. Their choices are to get vaccinated or to get fired. “To go to the office you have to be vaxxed and if you aren’t going to get vaxxed you won’t be able to work in that office,” Dimon said Monday. “And we’re not going to pay you not to work in the office.”
But this isn’t that big of a concern, considering 97% of JPMorgan Chase’s staffers based out of the company’s main headquarters in Manhattan are vaccinated, according to Dimon.
“Complying with the requirement means either submitting proof of vaccination by the January 14 deadline or receiving an approved medical or religious accommodation or state-permitted exemption,” a source with knowledge of the bank’s policies told CBS MoneyWatch while noting that the same deadline does not apply to branch staff.
His remarks come after Citigroup, the fourth-largest bank in the United States, took a hardline approach to vaccines. The bank isby the end of this week or risk losing their jobs under the company’s vaccination rules. Employees with qualifying .
The definition of “fully vaccinated” continues to change as well, with the ruling class continuing to add more boosters onto an already two-shot program. Others have suggested getting shots every few months in order to be considered “fully vaccinated.”
All of these mandates from employers are coming as the CDC’s own Rochelle Walensky admits the shots don’t stop transmission, and therefore, do not stop infection.
And yet, the push to inject every single human being on this planet continues.
