This is straight-up insane: Hershey's is not only firing their unvaxxed employees so their vaxxed employees can be safe from a vastly survivable virus that can still infect them after the jab, but they spent MONTHS relentlessly grilling employees who didn't want to get the vax – and pushed an insane propaganda campaign to get compliance.
The Hershey Co. has begun firing office workers who have declined to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
On the way out the door, the candy manufacturer is asking the fired employees to sign a nine-page confidentiality and release agreement that would remove their rights to sue the company or talk about their experience.
While their signature comes with a "special separation payment," many haven't signed the agreement and won't get the money. Employees say the payment was determined by an algorithm and for some, amounted to just over two months' pay.
I hope most of the employees reject the offer and sue the living heck out of the chocolate manufacturer!
That's not the worst of it though:
...[I]t stopped being fun after months of human resources department meetings that employees say included education about the vaccines, asking if the employee had changed their mind about getting the shots, as well as uncomfortably invasive questions.
"I really thought I'd be OK," Kim Durham, a former payment analyst and sourcing buyer, told The Epoch Times. "I thought, you cannot question my faith. Nobody can question that."
Durham asked for a religious accommodation in August and assumed she would get it.
"I thought this was behind me until September, when I met with an HR representative. It was an interrogation on your religious beliefs. They twisted your words and tried to put words in your mouth. It was terrible.
"I was asked such personal questions that had nothing to do with religion."
She was shocked when, in November, she received word that her request for religious accommodation had been denied.
Hershey's HR department, which must really be the evil cat from Dilbert, asked an insane amount of questions and tried to invoke the pope, as if the majority of Christians listen to what the pope has to say.
All who were interviewed mentioned being troubled by similar questions during the meetings, usually held with an immediate supervisor and someone from HR, such as: Have you ever been vaccinated? Are your children vaccinated? How do you protect yourself when you leave your home? How often do you go to church? Do you take Tylenol, ibuprofen, Tums, or Midol? If so, how can you say that you're truly a religious person, because a lot of those medicines also have the same ingredients as the vaccine?
Meanwhile, several people were told that the pope is vaccinated, and that he says the greatest gift you can give your community is to be vaccinated as well.
These HR companies think they have you on religious exemption grounds if you take Tylenol but object to the vaccine based on fetal cells being used.
But a person can object to the vaccine on the grounds that their religion (and this is true for any who believe the Bible) teaches that it is wrong to abuse someone's inalienable rights by forcing them to get a medical procedure – that such a thing violates the very image of God within the individual to do so.
One can also easily argue that it is a violation of conscience to receive a vaccine that you believe is ineffective, potentially dangerous, and unnecessary – especially when the risks are being censored by those in power and the jab is being used as a hammer to crush freedom and opposition. In such a case, it is necessary to speak the truth by refusing to comply. To violate one's conscience otherwise is sinful.
There are a dozen other examples I could give, but none of them matter, because America's chocolate company has gone full tyrant:
One new parent submitted their baby's birth certificate and other papers to set up insurance coverage, and was asked why the baby had received vaccinations if the parent wouldn't get the COVID shots.
Anyone who knows the difference between traditional vaccines and mRNA technology, or the lethality of such diseases for children compared to Covid, or the short-term safety data of the Covid jabs, or has common sense could answer that one.
Boy these HR reps are stupid and ill informed!
While office workers must be vaccinated or face dismissal, employees working in food production and Chocolate World, the company's retail outlet stores, are encouraged but not required to get the vaccination.
Welp, here's one American who will do his darndest to never buy Hershey's candy again.
