President Joe Biden's vaccine mandate will hurt the very people the Democrats always say they want to help; people of color and the poor. Take a look at the chart below.
As you can see, 7 million Americans who earn under $25,000 per year remain unvaccinated. About 9 million more who earn less than $50,000 are also unvaccinated.
That's a total of 16 million people who will have to get their COVID shots or submit weekly COVID tests in order to continue working.
Bottom line; Biden's vaccine mandate inconveniences and harms the poor.
To make matters worse, 'Black and Hispanic people remain less likely than their White counterparts to have received a vaccine, leaving them at increased risk, particularly as the variant spreads.'
In other words, Biden's policy not only harms the poor, but it will also disproportionately burden Black and Hispanic people at much higher rates than White people.
Again, this proves how short-sighted President Biden is. Biden is using his vaccine mandate as a hail mary attempt to slow down the spread of a virus and boost his sagging approval rating. It's an idea that has unintended consequences as we have noted above. It also proves, once again, Democrats don't really care about the lowest income earners or people of color. They just say those things to keep their power, exercise it for what they are really after, more control.
