From CEO Ed Bastian’s messagehttps://news.delta.com/ed-bastian-memo-covid-19-update to his Delta Airlines employees:
Beginning Nov. 1, unvaccinated employees enrolled in Delta’s account-based healthcare plan will be subject to a $200 monthly surcharge. The average hospital stay for COVID-19 has cost Delta $50,000 per person. This surcharge will be necessary to address the financial risk the decision to not vaccinate is creating for our company. In recent weeks since the rise of the B.1.617.2 variant, all Delta employees who have been hospitalized with COVID were not fully vaccinated.
Hey Ed, does this tax also apply to employees who have natural immunity from previously contracting Covid-19? Will they get taxed despite their superior natural immunity?
We continue to discover that that the vaccinated are getting sick and likely increasing the spread of virus mutations due to the non-sterilizing (leaky) nature of the mRNA gene therapy injections. Should these mutant vectors also be required to pay a surcharge for their contribution to increasing Delta’s healthcare costs? Or is okay to be virus spreader as long as you have shown sufficient submission to the State? How about your employees with co-morbidities, such as obesity and Type II diabetes?
I bet those employees are raising your healthcare costs and at greater risk for poor outcomes associated with Covid. Are they getting a pass too? There are many legitimate reasons to avoid being part of a massive gene therapy experiment. I guess avoiding Delta Airlines is just another one.
Come on, Ed! This just wreaks hypocrisy, discrimination, and coercion!
