      Worried that President Joe Biden's Covid vaccine mandate for private companies could cause a mass exodus of employees, business groups are pleading with the White House to delay the rule until after the holiday season.

      White House officials at the Office of Management and Budget held dozens of meetings with labor unions, industry lobbyists and private individuals last week as the administration conducts its final review of the mandate, which will require businesses with 100 or more employees to ensure they are vaccinated against Covid or tested weekly for the virus. It is estimated to cover roughly two-thirds of the private sector workforce.

      OMB officials have several meetings lined up Monday and Tuesday with groups representing dentists, trucking companies, staffing companies and realtors, among others. The American Trucking Associations, which will meet with the OMB on Tuesday, warned the administration last week that many drivers will likely quit rather than get vaccinated, further disrupting the national supply chain at time when the industry is already short 80,000 drivers.

      The trucking association estimates companies covered by the mandate could lose 37% of drivers through retirements, resignations and workers switching to smaller companies not covered by the requirements. "Now placing vaccination mandates on employers, which in turn force employees to be vaccinated, will create a workforce crisis for our industry and the communities, families and businesses we serve," Chris Spear, the association's president and CEO, wrote in a letter to the OMB last Thursda

      Retailers are also particularly concerned the mandate could trigger a spike in resignations that would exacerbate staffing problems at businesses already short on people, said Evan Armstrong, a lobbyist at the Retail Industry Leaders Association. "It has been a hectic holiday season already, as you know, with supply chain struggles," Armstrong told CNBC after a meeting with White House officials last Monday. "This is a difficult policy to implement. It would be even more difficult during the holiday season."

      Thirty percent of unvaccinated workers said they would leave their jobs rather than comply with a vaccine or testing mandate, according to a KFF poll published last month. Goldman Sachs, in an analysis published in September, said the mandate could hurt the already tight labor market. However, it said survey responses are often exaggerated and not as many people will actually quit.
      The Occupational Safety and Health Administration delivered its final rule to the OMB on Oct. 12, and the mandate is expected to take effect soon after the agency completes its review.

      The National Retail Federation, the trucking association and the retail leaders group are asking White House officials to give businesses 90 days to comply with the mandate, delaying implementation until late January at the earliest.

      This administration is at a serious crossroads right now. I think they thought everyone would succumb. They have no idea how to deal with what will happen when all these people leave these companies. They have the knife to their own throat right now. And they’re just dumb enough to cut it. I also don’t think they’re prepared for the fallout from the mandate for federal employees. My wife found out there are tens of thousands of religious exemptions filed. If those are rejected, which most if not all will likely be, a very large percentage of those people will walk away. I can’t even imagine how fucked up things will get if Biden doesn’t back down. Better stock up now on the absolute necessities.

      Not to mention all the lawsuits to come for religious exemptions being denied

      I found out yesterday that we have a mandatory survey to fill out and ask if you had civic or a vac, imagine if this happened when AIDS started and they asked if you where homosexual or an intravenous drug user, think of the uproar from the left. Just to let the rest of the world know, I will refuse the the survey, and any other invasion of privacy bar none
