Under the Biden administration, COVID-19 hysteria hit an all-time high with the emergence of the Omicron variant last year. Woke corporate America reacted harshly by either firing or placing thousands of employees on unpaid leave as a result of their refusal to receive a vaccination.
Now that COVID has all but disappeared, conveniently as the 2022 midterms approach, companies like United Airlines are apparently beginning to see the fault in their actions, and are recalling thousands of unvaccinated employees back to the job, Breitbart reports.
On March 28, some 2,000+ unvaccinated employees who had filed for exemptions, who were basically shoved aside by the airline, will return to work, according to the report.
More major U.S. companies are predicted to follow suit as Democrats continue to completely shift the narrative by putting COVID in their rearview mirrors.
United Airlines had to come up with an official statement on why they decided to bring back thousands of unvaxxed employees, citing a “steep decline” in COVID-19 cases.
However, as a CNBC report noted, the move came in the wake of the threat of those employees sending thousands of letters to the airline’s board of directors, in which they expressed the dire hardships they’ve experienced over the course of their unpaid leave.
The letter-writing campaign was organized by a group called Airline Employees 4 Health Freedom, which was formed after UA CEO Scott Kirby imposed some of the harshest COVID-related restrictions on his employees during the bulk of the pandemic.
A number of social media users wondered if other airlines would soon follow suit.
United Airlines to allow unvaccinated employees back to work on March 28. I wonder if Hawaiian Airlines is going to bring back the 800 plus unvaccinated employees they terminated.

Unsurprisingly, as a result of UA’s ridiculously strict COVID-19 measures, which proved to be all but fruitless, six brave employees filed suit against their employer on behalf of the 2000+ employees that were placed on unpaid leave and stripped of their medical benefits.
The plaintiffs in the lawsuit argued that United Airlines “violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) by discriminating against them based on their religious beliefs and medical conditions,” Breitbart noted.
While it appeared that the plaintiffs had a chance at success, a judge recently declared the lawsuit as “moot” given that UA has decided to bring back the unvaccinated employees. Don’t be surprise to see other companies follow this trend, especially as legal cases continue to mount.
