Agribusiness group applauds Supreme Court vaccine ruling

An agricultural group is applauding Thursday’s decision by the U.S. Supreme Court striking down the Biden administration’s COVID vaccine mandate on private employers.  Biden planned to use OSHA to enforce the mandate on all private employers with more than 100 employees, but the court ruled the mandate overstepped OSHA’s workplace realm.

Tom Bressner with the Wisconsin Agribusiness Association says the court made the right decision. He tells Brownfield, “To mandate a company and say you are going to have to make them get vaccinated or you’re going to have to test them each week almost makes those employees want to say, well, why shouldn’t I go to work for a company (that’s) smaller that has less than 100 employees?
