(LifeSiteNews) Social media company Gab has already made a name for itself as the freedom-loving version of Twitter and Facebook.
It’s now going a step further to promote freedom by launching the “No Vax Mandate Job Board.”
“In light of the Biden Administration encouraging employers to mandate vaccines in order to retain employment while ironically not requiring vaccination mandates for their own staff, Gab has created a No Vax Mandate Job Board group,” company founder Andrew Torba wrote in a blog post.
“This job board is for sharing job openings that do not require employees to inject themselves with an experimental substance or violate their bodily autonomy and religious beliefs in order to retain employment,” Torba explained. “This is also a board for job seekers to share their resume, skills, and story.”
Torba’s company does not require employees to get jabbed.
“At Gab we do not require our employees to be vaccinated. In fact we don’t pry into any of the personal health choices of our team because frankly it’s none of our business,” the blog post said. “We know there are many businesses who share these values with us and many people looking to work for those businesses.”
The board contains a mixture of job postings, job seekers, and advice on obtaining an exemption from a mandate. There is also a link to novaxmandate.org, which appears to complement the board. Positions include nursing, news reporting, and dog grooming, while those looking for work include engineers, medical support and electricians.
Although various companies have mandated COVID-19 vaccines, many are finding themselves facing staffing shortages.
“Two months after firing unvaccinated hospital staff, Houston Methodist is one of several area hospitals experiencing a severe shortage of medical personnel,” The Foundation for Economic Education reported.
Houston Methodist made the news as one of the first corporations to require employees to get vaccinated. It defeated a lawsuit this summer from 150 staff members who did not want to take the jab.
Other industries have warned about the effect vaccine mandates could have on an already tight employment market, fueled by generous welfare payments for people who do not work.
“My fears are that people who have decided not to get the vaccine for many reasons won’t get the vaccine so we’re not really talking about a mandate that’s going to get all of our people vaccinated,” a Maine firefighting union president told Fox News recently. “We’re talking about a mandate going to get rid of people who are not vaccinated.”
“So, my fear is that these people are going to walk out of principle. Our job is what people with strong principles gravitate towards,” Chris Thomson told Fox News. “As I don’t think some will buckle on it. I think they will walk.”
Nursing home operators have also warned President Biden not to implement a vaccine mandate for all of their staff, due to staffing concerns. However, those concerns are based more on other medical facilities not having mandates in place. The nursing care facilities fear competition as medical staff could flee for companies that do not require the jab.
The Biden administration continues to urge private and public employers to coerce individuals into getting vaccinated.
“If you’re a business leader, a non-profit leader, a state or local leader, who has been waiting for full FDA approval to require vaccinations, I call on you now to do that,” Biden said Monday, on news that the Pfizer vaccine had received full FDA approval despite reports of thousands of deaths and hundreds of thousands of adverse reactions potentially linked to the shots.
The Biden White House has required federal workers, including its own staff, to either receive vaccination or perpetually wear a mask and submit to social distancing, testing and travel restrictions. White House staff do not face a flat-out vaccination mandate, as do other federal employees, including federal healthcare workers, however.
