There are a lot of opinions and views on vaccine mandates and incentive programs, but one thing that most people seem to agree on is that anti-vax protestors screaming in public and/or attacking service staff, educators, and health professionals has really gone too far.
We’ve seen parents threatening school staff, to such an extent the Justice Department has had to address it, and there are any number of videos that have gone viral of people insisting it’s their “right” to shop in a private business without a mask, regardless of local ordinances or the policies of that company.
In this case, though, it’s at a job fair in Nevada. Though the Biden Administration’s vaccine mandate for large companies includes an option for regular testing for employees who choose not to get the shot, this particular spectator at the event says her refusal to be vaccinated is keeping her out of work, and proceeds to scream over Governor Steve Sisolak as he attempts to speak to the crowd about the effort to link companies and potential employees.

“I want my Constitutional rights back!” she screams, as she insists that vaccine mandates are to blame for unemployment.
“I wanna work but they’re forcing vaccinations on me. My friends would love to work, but they’re forcing vaccinations on us.”
It’s not clear what industry the protestor and her friends work in, though it’s certainly true that people in some fields, such as health care, may face the choice between vaccination and unemployment, especially those who are typically around vulnerable patients.
Still, the crowd is glad to see her go — as security escorts her out peacefully, there’s a round of cheering for at least one job well-done.
