“Starbucks is no longer requiring its U.S. workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19, reversing a plan it announced earlier this month.” This was reported by the Associated Press on Wednesday.
According to the news agency, the company took the action following last week’s Supreme Court decision that blocked mandatory worker vaccinations pushed by the Biden administration.
Starbucks complies with court ruling
The Court’s ruling explains that the decision has nothing to do with the efficacy of the vaccines, but is based on the power of the Federal Government to force workers to receive the injection against the disease.
“We respect the court’s ruling and will comply,” Starbucks Chief Operating Officer John Culver wrote in a memo sent to company workers accessed by AP.
