Southwest CEO Blames Biden for Vax Mandates: I Was Against It But He Forced Us To

‘I’m not in favor of that never have been’

KELLY: “Talking about the vaccine mandate, oh, yeah, I mean, there are some that have very strong views on both sides of that issue, and you know, it’s not – as I think you probably know, I’ve never been in favor of corporations imposing that kind of a mandate. I’m not in favor of that, never have been. But the executive order from President Biden mandates that all federal employees, and then all federal contractors, which covers all the major airlines, have to have a mandate -- a vaccine in place by December the 8th. So we’re working through that and we’re urging all of our employees to get vaccinated. If they can’t, we’re urging them to seek an accommodation, either for medical or religious reasons. And my goal, obviously, is that no one losing their job. The -- the objective here, obviously, is to improve health and safety, not for people to lose their jobs.”
