“Stop supporting medical tyranny” – Carhartt faces boycott over vax mandate...

A week ago, apparel company Carhartt Inc. announced it would be keeping its Covid-19 vaccine mandate in place, despite the Supreme Court’s kibosh on the Biden administration’s mandate for large private employers.

In a letter circulated to employees, Carharrt CEO Mark Valade wrote:  We put workplace safety at the very top of our priority list and the Supreme Court’s recent ruling doesn’t impact that core value. We, and the medical community, continue to believe vaccines are necessary to ensure a safe working environment for every associate and even perhaps their households. While we appreciate that there may be differing views, workplace safety is an area where we and the union that presents our associates cannot compromise. An unvaccinated workforce is both a both a people and a business risk that our company is unwilling to take.

That decision did not sit well with Carhartt’s customers and followers.

Before the announcement, the company was averaging about 550 mentions a day on Twitter, per the Wall Street Journal.

After the letter began circulating on social media, the number of tweets mentioning Carhartt exploded to 33,000 on Tuesday and over 25,000 on Wednesday More than 4,000 tweets used the hashtag #BoycottCarhartt.

Author Ashley St. Clair didn’t mince words, telling her 395,700 followers to Cancel @Carhartt and “Stop supporting medical tyranny.”

 

The flames didn’t stop with her.

Attorney Molly McCann  tweeted "Well @Carhartt has labelled the unvaccinated dangerous and implemented a vaccine mandate. Pretty rich from a company sustained by the ranchers, farmers, laborers, etc. who make this country great and celebrate her values of freedom and liberty. Boycott Carhartt until they break.”

Florida Republican state Rep. Anthony Sabatini tweeted that he was going to write a letter “to @GovRonDeSantis urging him to eliminate any and all state agency business & contracts with the woke company @Carhartt—which recently announced that they will be firing all unvaccinated workers.” 

And author and former Trump advisor Sebastian Gorka suggested people should “never buy @Carharrt products again.”

Ironically, on Carhartt’s company website, they state “We exist to serve and protect hardworking people.”

From what?  The truth? Freedom?

You’re not protecting their rights to make their own medical choices, apparently.

You’re not allowing them to make the best decisions for themselves and their families.

Just so everyone knows, at Nine Line, we would NEVER do this to our employees.
