Healthcare workers subjected to vaccine mandate will get $10M in legal settlement

healthcare-workers-subjected-to-vaccine-mandate-will-get-10m-in-legal-settlement


Quote:

A group of nearly 500 healthcare workers is slated to receive a $10 million payout in a first-of-its-kind settlement challenging their hospital's COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

The coalition of workers at NorthShore University HealthSystem in Illinois filed their suit in October 2021, alleging the healthcare facility was illegally refusing to grant religious exemptions to the mandate. The July 29 settlement agreement by the state's Northern District Court means 473 current and former healthcare workers are soon to receive compensation for being denied religious exemptions from the healthcare system's vaccine requirement.

Liberty Counsel, the legal group representing 13 plaintiffs, said the settlement should "serve as a strong warning to employers across the nation that they cannot refuse to accommodate those with sincere religious objections to forced vaccination mandates,” according to a statement from Horatio Mihet, vice president of legal affairs at the group.

Anyone who lost a job due to their inability to comply with the mandate is eligible to receive $25,000, and any of the 13 plaintiffs involved in the suit are eligible for an additional $20,000, meaning they would receive $45,000 in total, said Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel.

Workers who eventually received the vaccine despite raising religious objections would be eligible for around $3,000 in compensation. Final payouts will be dependent on how many workers apply for the money. Additionally, anyone who was fired because of their refusal to get vaccinated based on sincerely held religious beliefs will be eligible for reemployment by the healthcare system.

The agreement also sets aside $2 million for attorneys fees.

U.S. District Judge John Kness, an appointee of former President Donald Trump who presided over the case, was asked to approve the proposed settlement.

The judge appeared to side with the legal group's claims that the healthcare administration violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act when they denied religious accommodations.

Staver signaled in an interview with the Washington Examiner that his legal group's litigation battles over employees who were denied vaccine exemptions in the private sector are far from over, saying, "We have been working with thousands of employees across the country," including airline industries and other types of healthcare and private employers.

"Many of them face the same jab-or-job mandate that is that issue in NorthShore," Staver said.

"Let this case be a warning to employers that violated Title VII. It is especially significant and gratifying that this first classwide COVID settlement protects healthcare workers," Staver added.



Looks like I was right again, huh?

If this can happen in Chicago, Illinois, it can and will happen anywhere.

This is the first of many.

We're coming for the Democrat Authoritarians and we're going to shove those illegal mandates right up your asses.

Looks like 44% of women who were pregnant during Pfizer Covid vaccine trials had a miscarriage. That was found in their own documents that they've been forced to release by court order.

The Democrats are going to hang themselves with this one.

Unfortunately the 3,645 page document you refer to does not say 44%, but WebMD says "As many as 50% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage." 50% is bigger than 44%, just in case you need help doing the math, 6ix. - https://www.webmd.com/baby/guide/pregnancy-miscarriage

6ix, by the way, your document, FDA-CBER-2021-5683-0216726, came out on 01-Apr-2021, April Fool's Day, a year and half ago, so it is not exactly recent.

It didn't "come out" a year and a half ago. It was put together a year and a half ago and was just recently released to the public via court order. If Pfizer had its way in court, that document wouldn't have seen the light of day for another 73.5 years.

The United States will soon drop out of the Top 50 nations in terms of life expectancy.

Every country above us has a public option for health insurance of a publicly funded healthcare system. Not some. Not most. Every single one.

"China passes the United States in life expectancy" should be a headline in every US newspaper

https://twitter.com/johngreen/status/1567578183683162116

And who is lowering life expectancy in the United States? It is the Trumptards and those who might not be Trump supporters but live like Trump does: fat and/or stupid about their health.

Life expectancy tied to voting choices in last U.S. presidential election

By Lisa Rapaport, Reuters Health

(Reuters Health) - Voters in counties where life expectancy has stagnated and declined in recent years were more likely to abandon the Democratic Party to help elect U.S. President Donald Trump, a new study suggests.

The study examined county-level data on voting patterns from the 2008 and 2016 presidential elections and on life expectancy for people born from 1980 to 2014.

Nationally, life expectancy increased by an average 5.3 years during the study period, researchers report in the American Journal of Public Health, online August 17.

In counties with below-average gains in life expectancy or declines, a majority of voters chose Trump, the Republican nominee. But in counties with above-average gains in life expectancy, most voters chose the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

“Although economic marginalization has been cited as a reason for shifting voting patterns, the relationship between changes in life expectancy and the 2016 election results had not been previously documented,” said study author Jacob Bor of the Boston University School of Public Health.

“The very strong association is striking and suggests that the large divergence in health fortunes has mirrored the divergence in politics,” Bor said by email.

To assess the connection between survival odds and political participation, Bor looked at changes in the Republican share of votes between 2008 and 2016 as well as shifts in the absolute numbers of votes won by each of the two major political parties.

Overall, Republicans lost 67,000 votes from 2008 to 2016 in counties with above-average gains in life expectancy but gained 3.1 million votes in counties with below-average life expectancy trends.

During the same period, Democrats gained 1.4 million votes in counties with above-average life expectancy gains but lost 5 million votes in counties with below-average gains.

Counties where life expectancy stagnated or declined saw a 10-percentage-point increase in the Republican vote share between 2008 and 2016, the study found.

In counties where life expectancy increased by less than 3 years over the study period, the Republican vote share increased on average by 9.1 percentage points.

For each additional year of life expectancy gain, the change in Republican vote share was 2.3 percentage points lower.

Democrats, meanwhile, saw an average 3.5-percentage-point increase in vote share in counties where life expectancy gains exceeded 7 years.

The study wasn’t a controlled experiment designed to prove whether or how life expectancy might directly influence voting.


But Bor notes that since coming to power, the Trump administration has proposed cuts to health insurance for the poor, social programs, health research, and environmental worker protections that are all key determinants of health at the population level and might influence life expectancy in the future.

“This study confirms what we already know,” said Dr. Vicente Navarro, a health policy researcher at the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. “The standard of living and quality of life of the majority of the working class of the U.S. has been declining.”

“They are angry and channel their anger against what they consider the political establishment, voting for Trump,” Navarro, who wasn’t involved in the study, said by email. “The paradox is that President Trump is carrying out policies that will further reduce their life expectancy.”

Even though the study doesn’t prove life expectancy influences voting decisions, many health problems that can contribute to a premature death can also fuel voter dissatisfaction with the status quo, said Jose Tapia, a politics researcher at Drexel University in Philadelphia who wasn’t involved in the study.

“Higher mortality rates can be caused for instance by more frequent deaths due to diabetes, overdose of prescription or illegal drugs, alcohol abuse, suicide or heart attacks, all of which can be correlated with higher rates of dissatisfaction with standards of life or current politic, which can lead to vote against the party in power,” Tapia said by email.

Republican Counties Have Higher Mortality Rates Than Democratic Ones, Study Finds

Madeline Halpert, Forbes Staff
Jun 7, 2022, 06:30pm EDT

Americans living in counties that voted Republican during presidential elections from 2000 to 2016 experienced higher death rates than those who lived in Democratic counties, according to a new British Medical Journal study, which researchers said added to a growing body of evidence that liberal policies may lead to better health outcomes.

Key Facts

Mortality rates dropped 22% in Democratic counties compared to 11% in Republican counties from 2001 to 2019, according to the study, which used data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention linked to county-level presidential election data.

Between 2001 and 2019, the gap in death rates between Democratic and Republican counties also grew by more than 500%, driven largely by deaths from heart disease; cancer; chronic lung disease; unintentional injuries, including drug overdoses; and suicide.

Black and Hispanic residents experienced similar improvements in mortality rates in Democratic and Republican counties, while white residents in Democratic counties saw 15% lower mortality rates than their white counterparts in Republican counties in 2019, compared to a 3% gap in death rates in 2001.

Black Americans saw higher mortality rates in both Democratic and Republican counties compared to white and Hispanic Americans from 2001 to 2019, although Black residents in both Democratic and Republican residents experienced substantial improvements in mortality rates since 2001.

Rural Republican counties experienced the highest mortality rates out of all groups and saw the smallest improvement in death rates over time, suggesting political environments play a crucial role in the widening mortality gap between urban and rural areas, according to the researchers.

What We Don’t Know

Exactly how and what local policies may have affected health outcomes. Researchers studied mortality rates based on whether counties voted for Democratic or Republican presidential candidates, but they did not study specific factors linking political environment and mortality.

Key Background

Previous research has shown counties that elect Republicans tend to see worse health outcomes, including fewer improvements in life expectancy and higher rates of deaths from suicide, drugs and alcohol. The new research comes a day after a study published in Health Affairs showed people living in counties that voted Republican in the 2020 presidential election were more likely to die from Covid-19 than those in counties that voted for Democrats. Researchers have found more liberal policies such as labor, immigration and environmental protections are linked with better life expectancy, while more conservative policies like abortion restrictions and lax gun control laws are associated with lower life expectancy. More liberal states are also more likely to implement welfare policies that act as a safety net for vulnerable populations, such as Medicaid expansion, which has led to better health care and reductions in mortality, while Republican-led states are more likely to have higher rates of uninsured people, according to the researchers. The BMJ study is the first to include data from after the 2016 presidential election as well as a breakdown of mortality rates by sex, race, ethnicity and location.

Researchers suggested further studies should focus on the factors causing a growing difference in mortality rates between Republican and Democratic counties.

I was prepared to disagree with Russel Brand bc I expected another woo-woo "the vaccine will kill you" scare-story-around-the-campfire, but I actually agree with everything he said.

BTW I did try and track down those "excess death" stories and so far I haven't found that statistics that prove the point. That's partly bc I haven't found a breakdown of excess deaths "before and after" widespread vaccination, and also I would actually like to see a breakdown of what actually DID kill people... was it the effects of lockdown or something else? Been too busy to try and find useful stats but hope to get to that again some day.

blah blah blah ...



It's a stupid study. Correlation does not prove causation. In this case, there are too many confounding factors that the authors didn't take into account/ correct for. One of them is wealth ... since the DNC sees its voter base as guilty but relatively wealthy white sub/urbanites, Democrat counties may be overall wealthier. Did they correct for wealth?

Another factor may be trend in unemployment. The (former) working class derives much of its self-esteem and feelings of agency from having a job. Take that away and you get the diseases of despair, including alcoholism, (other) drug addiction, and suicide. Also, stress overeating. Did they correct for trends in joblessness?

I've seen these studies before, and the conclusion usually drawn from them has nothing to do with "Democrat v Republican" but that the decline in lifespan is mostly attributable to stress and "diseases of despair", and that is caused by factors mostly outside of individuals' control.

A Trumptard is told to stop smoking. Their first and often only reaction is "You can't tell me what to do." Give it a little time. Then they die of smoking. Rush Limbaugh is the most famous Trumptard example of that.

Signym, do you really think there is no connection between "You can't tell me what to do" and their death by smoking? There tend to be many Americans who have the mental glitch "You can't tell me what to do" but the heaviest concentration of Americans with that glitch are the Trumptards. It is not just smoking, either. It could be getting vaccinated, and not just for covid.

Signym, there is an abundance of good health advice circulating such as don't get fat, don't get drunk, much of it from authorities who know. And there are many people who refuse good advice and they end up dead because of that refusal to listen to authorities. It is not the authorities' fault. The fault is within those who won't listen and learn. I call bullshit on your "decline in lifespan is mostly attributable to stress and "diseases of despair", and that is caused by factors mostly outside of individuals' control." The factors are NOT, repeat, NOT "mostly" outside the individual's control. Overeating? Drug use? Alcohol consumption? Not exercising? In what world are those controlled by someone other than the individual?

In my experience, the kind of people who defend Trump are not learning from his mistakes. They insist he is not mistaken! (During his blundering business career he has been sued over and over because Trump is a mistake-making machine.) They are the same people who don't learn what mistakes not to make in order to avoid an early death.

It's a stupid study. Correlation does not prove causation. In this case, there are too many confounding factors that the authors didn't take into account/ correct for. One of them is wealth ... since the DNC sees its voter base as guilty but relatively wealthy white sub/urbanites, Democrat counties may be overall wealthier. Did they correct for wealth?

Another factor may be trend in unemployment. The (former) working class derives much of its self-esteem and feelings of agency from having a job. Take that away and you get the diseases of despair, including alcoholism, (other) drug addiction, and suicide. Also, stress overeating. Did they correct for trends in joblessness?

I've seen these studies before, and the conclusion usually drawn from them has nothing to do with "Democrat v Republican" but that the decline in lifespan is mostly attributable to stress and "diseases of despair", and that is caused by factors mostly outside of individuals' control.

A Trumptard is told to stop smoking. Their first and often only reaction is "You can't tell me what to do."

Given that this is a biased assumption (and you know what assumptions do: they make an "ass" out of "u" and "me") I didn't read further.

Just like I said in April of 2020 and all the way up until now, the more time that passes the more right I will be proven about all of this...

I hope everybody who got "vaccinated" doesn't live to regret it.

As it stands now, I'm the only person in my family who didn't get one.
