Jan 18-Carhartt An unvaccinated workforce is a risk that our company is unwilling to take

“An unvaccinated workforce is both a people and business risk that our company is unwilling to take.” — Carhartt CEO Mark Valade

The Supreme Court may have blocked the Biden Administration’s attempt to get large business with 100 or more employee to mandate COVID-19 vaccines, but apparel giant Carhartt is moving ahead with its own vaccine plan.

Carhartt CEO Mark Valade sent an email to his employees stating that the Michigan-based workwear company founded in 1889 will still require workers to vaccinate against COVID-19. Workers have to be vaccinated by Feb. 15.

Carhartt verified the contents of the email to MarketWatch. It was sent to employees last Friday, but the message was being shared widely across Twitter on Tuesday afternoon.

“We put workplace safety at the very top of our priority list and the Supreme Court’s recent ruling doesn’t impact that core value,” the email said.

“We, and the medical community, continue to believe vaccines are necessary to ensure a safe working environment for every a*sociate and even perhaps their households,” it continued. “While we appreciate that there may be differing views, workplace safety is an area where we and the union that represents our a*sociates cannot compromise. An unvaccinated workforce is both a people and business risk that our company is unwilling to take.”


The email screenshot led “Carhartt” to trend on Twitter throughout the day Tuesday as people either praised the workwear company for protecting its workers’ health — or, threatened to boycott the brand for forcing its employees to get vaccinated.

Some of those applauding the move from Carhartt even pledged to support the company by buying more items from them. “Companies that value their employees safety and well being will always win my money,” wrote one.

Critics described the move as a way to control their workers and force vaccinations, with some calling to “cancel” Carhartt.

It’s important to note that these are just a few of the posts about the ongoing situation regarding Carhartt’s vaccination policy, and does not mean that equal amounts of people support and do not support the decision by the company.

“Carhartt fully understands and respects the varying opinions on this topic, and we are aware some of our a*sociates do not support this policy. However, we stand behind our decision because we believe vaccines are necessary to protect our workforce,” a Carhartt spokesperson told MarketWatch on Tuesday.

The government-run U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has stated that it is legal under federal law for companies to require their workers to get the COVID-19 vaccine, with a few exceptions related to other health complications, pregnancy, religious beliefs and other reasonable accommodations.

And according to the Center for Diseases Control and Prevention, COVID-19 vaccines are safe and help protect people against COVID-19. “All currently authorized and recommended COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective, and CDC does not recommend one vaccine over another. The most important decision is to get a COVID-19 vaccination as soon as possible,” the CDC says.

Imagine getting COVID and your boss wants you to still come in to work but just wear a mask.

That's happening now.

Capitalism is undefeated.

So what about the vaccinated that are still catching and spreading the sh*t? This is what pisses me off about the whole thing. Everybody acts like the vaccinated are all good and can’t spread it. I had 3 relatives that got Covid the past month and all 3 were “fully vaccinated”. My sister got Covid last year, vaccinated and “boosted” and got it again 2 weeks ago (which she caught from her vaccinated boyfriend) and it was harder on her this time around than the first time.

Every time someone vaccinated catches it, it’s a “breakthrough case”. Get the fu*k out of here Everybody is catching it and spreading it, vaccinated or not. All this is doing is fu*king up the country.

Reminds me of that video where that female bus driver is speaking on the MTA allowing Covid positive workers to come in and that is resulting in more of a spread.

They're letting go of anyone unwilling to take that jab, but then ok with the spread under the guise of "the worst that can happen is mild sickness".

Yet, people are dying while fully vaccinated...

A lot of the logic not adding up on this "worst that can happen" sh*t.

This for optics as usual. Not for "humanity" or caring for others.

Everyone I know who has had Covid in the last 6-8 months were all vax’d kissing babies and sh*t.

That vax became the “I’m better than you” serum and oddly under trump I know the left would have had a field day with that being so un-American and big corps would horde all the test and they’d cost $150 for one and how the “poor can’t afford them to work blah blah blah”.
it’s kinda scary these illusions and fears they present when it works best on both sides.
the right taking it to court that’s a blue move mandates that’s a right move

the left on some ride or die sh*t in response to trump they basically getting “revenge” while the right is planning ahead for the next election..from ground up.

Planning ahead to cheat amd successfully steal the election this time. It's crazy. America going down in flames in real time. Devoured by its own greed and unfettered capitalism. I have to get out of this bi*ch.

Out of all those vaccinated family members not one time did you mention their time in the hospital on a ventilator. Stay up. You’re reciting old poetry.

Being unvaxxed is only really a risk to yourself. You can get covid vaxxed or unvaxxed. That sh*t should all be at the persons discretion, if youre vaxxed why the hell you care if people are unvaxxed in the workplace. You got the "protection"

The logic is so simple it's disturbing that we're at the place we're at with this
