WATCH: “Research Says Mandates Work” Mark Cuban Explains Why All His Employees Must Be Vaccinated

Billionaire Mark Cuban requires his employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19, even though he says he’s not sure whether the government should mandate this for all large companies. Why? His reason is as simple and obvious as it gets: because it works.

Although the Supreme Court ruled that the Federal government cannot broadly require businesses across all fields to mandate their employees be vaccinated, it still affirmed that certain industries, like health care, can be required to do so. Individual companies can also still choose for themselves to require vaccination.

Mark Cuban says that he’s done exactly that, because there are millions of cancer survivors and other immune-compromised individual in the United States, and because research shows that vaccines work, and mandates work.

“All the research says that mandates work. In a perfect world you’d just want to leave it up to employee choice, but this is a contagious disease and we have t take responsibility. I have to take responsibility for thousands of people. You can’t just ignore and hope it works it’s way out…in my companies you’re required to be vaccinated. Should the government do the same for major employers? I go back and forth honestly, I don’t have a good answer for you.”

To his rough estimate about cancer survivors, Cancer.gov says that there were an estimated 16.9 million in the U.S. as of January of 2019, with 22.2 million projected by 2030 — and that cancer survivors may suffer a more serious illness if they contract COVID-19.

The American Medical Association also noted that there may be less vaccine response in immune-compromised individuals — meaning that they rely more heavily on other safety precautions, including herd immunity.
