Grocer Removes Benefits, Adds Healthcare Surcharge for Unvaccinated Employees

The policy was so egregious that the White House immediately sought to distance themselves from it.

From the moment that vaccinations become the preeminent avenue for battling the COVID-19 pandemic, there were concerns that Americans choosing to not be inoculated may face scrutiny, segregation, and discrimination.

And boy, has that turned out to be the truth.

Americans who’ve chosen their bodily autonomy over a COVID-19 jab have been relegated to a lower class of society, particularly in Democrat-run cities and companies, shunned in ways that we would never have though possible previously in this country of ours.  Now, in an offensive escalation of this discriminatory practice, the Kroger grocery store chain is taking things to the next level.

Kroger, the country’s biggest traditional grocery chain, is ending some benefits for unvaccinated workers as big employers attempt to compel more of their workforce to become vaccinated with cases of COVID-19 again rising.

Unvaccinated workers will no longer be eligible to receive up to two weeks paid emergency leave if they become infected, a company spokesperson confirmed Tuesday. That policy was put into place last year when vaccines were unavailable.

But wait…there’s more.

The company said it will also begin charging a $50 monthly fee to unvaccinated salaried workers and managers who are enrolled in a company health care plan. Unionized workers and non-union hourly workers won’t be charged that fee.

The policies were so egregious that even the White House was looking to distance itself from the move, with Press Secretary Jen Psaki making it very clear that Kroger’s decision had nothing to do with guidance from the Biden administration.
